Lighter Eggplant Parmesan

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.
