Love the flavors of classic eggplant Parmesan [PARMIGIANA] but looking for something a little lighter? Baking the eggplant in this dish is easier and much lower in fat than the traditional coating and frying. A simple pink sauce between layers of eggplant gives rich and creamy flavor without using so much cheese -- but don’t worry, there is still plenty of bubbling mozzarella to make this dish feel like you’re eating at your favorite Italian restaurant.
In some circles zucchini is kind of a hard sell, am I right? Today's recipe will change all of that. It's a take on the classic deep-fried zucchini, but much healthier, and (almost) as addictive. We all know nothing's truly as good as deep fried. But who wants to fry at home? This version is really, really good, and so much easier -- trust me. Coat sticks of zucchini with light breadcrumbs (panko) and savory Parmesan cheese, quickly bake them to crunchy perfection, and watch them disappear!
