Baked Eggplant Marinara
Baked Eggplant Marinara
(Melanzana Marinara)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
Eight 1/2-inch thick center-cut eggplant rounds (from 2 small eggplants)
All purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten to blend
1 and 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs made from crustless French bread
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese (about 2 and 1/2 ounces)
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 and 1/4 cups purchased marinara sauce
3/4 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese (about 3 ounces)
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 350F.

Lightly oil baking sheet.

Sprinkle eggplant rounds with salt and pepper.

Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls.

Mix breadcrumbs and Parmigiano cheese in another shallow bowl.

Coat eggplant rounds with flour, then eggs, then breadcrumb mixture, patting to adhere.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add 4 eggplant rounds to skillet.

Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to prepared sheet.

Repeat with remaining olive oil and eggplant rounds.

Spread 2 tablespoons ricotta cheese over each round.

Top each with sauce and mozzarella cheese, dividing equally.

Bake until rounds are heated through and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Makes 8 first-course servings.
