    This is such an easy way to fix up eggplant and fast. I used spagetti sauce instead, and I also sprinkled the eggplant with garlic powder and itailian seasoning. I olny used half of the parmesan, but I also spinked it with motzerella. It is simple, but very good, and will definately be making it again.
