Delicious. We plan on making this several more times this summer with eggplant, tomatoes, and fresh basil from the farmers' market. Yum!!
We found this recipe very bland. Would add marinara sauce next time and maybe some oregano with the basil. Liked the fact that it's baked though so may give it another try.
Exceptionally good recipe. Not the greasy egg dipped Eggplant Parmesan from the past. It's just perfect, especially if you can afford to indulge in fresh mozarella (I got it for less than half price today!). I made this in 2008 for a friend who loves Eggplant Parmesan and fatty foods, and he dubbed this the best ever. :) The fresher ingredients, the better. (By the way: when I need fresh herbs, I go to my local nursery and buy the whole plant for less than I can get the herbs at the grocery store. Then water, and keep on the kitchen counter or patio, and they're available any time!)
Update: Oh...I read marybrehm's comment, and realized that I didn't mention topping it with marinara sauce! Gotta have the sauce, for sure! And more parmesan on top of that.
These were delish and my kids actually tried eggplant and loved it!
This is perfect. Next time I'll have to make some meat to go with it for my meat loving husband. The kids and I loved it though and my husband ate it.
