We really like eggplant and would rather have it baked than fried. This can be served as a side dish or main dish. —Donna Wardlow-Keating, Omaha, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Additional basil, optional

Directions

  1. Combine oil and garlic; brush over both sides of eggplant slices. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes; turn. Bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Place half the eggplant in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with half the basil and Parmesan cheese. Arrange tomato slices over top; sprinkle with remaining basil and Parmesan. Layer with half the mozzarella cheese and the remaining eggplant; top with remaining mozzarella. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake until cheese is melted, 5-7 minutes longer. Garnish with additional basil, if desired.
