Egg Plant Parmesan

Scripture to Live By: 
Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine,but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
 Proverbs 31:25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
Matthew 11:29-30 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Food Recipe:
Egg Plant, Egg Plant, Egg Plant every where.  I love this time of the year when some of our favorite vegetables are becoming more readily available.  I love fresh vegetables but especially Egg Plant.
We like Egg Plant cooked in several recipes.  Egg Plant Parmesan is one of our favorites.

If you would like to make it like I do here is what you will need:
2 egg plants
1 can of Grated Parmesan Cheese
3 eggs
1 can of Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs
2 jars of Ragu or Presto Pasta Sauce or your favorite brand.
1 16 ounce package of Mozzarella Cheese


Cut ends off the egg plant.


Slice in 1/4 inch slices with the peel on.



Measure out your Italian bread crumbs and eggs in two different bowls.


Beat your eggs.


Dip egg plant in beaten eggs.


Roll in Italian bread crumbs.


Put in electric skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray, I also spray the tops of the egg plant with cooking spray.(For crisper, use a couple table spoons of oil in the pan, heat oil before putting egg plant in the oil.)


Cook until golden brown on both sides.


About 15 minutes or until tender.  

While the egg plant is cooking prepare your 9 x 13 dish with a layer of Ragu Pasta Sauce.


Spread a half of jar evenly on the bottom of the dish.


Top with Parmesan cheese.


When the Egg Plant is fully cooked,  remove from pan.


Start layering in on top of the Parmesan Cheese.



If the Egg Plant is large slices then it will not take many to cover the dish layer.
If the slices are not that large you will need more to cover the layer.


Then top the egg plant with more sauce.


Top the sauce with a half a bag ofMozzeralla Cheese.


Add more Parmesan cheese as well.


If you have shredded Parmesan you can add it instead of grated Parmesan.


Repeat layers of Egg Plant.


Sauce


Parmesan


Mozzerella


Cover with foil.


Cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Then remove foil and cook another 10-15 minutes. or until golden.


Let cool slightly before serving.


I served the Egg Plant Parmesan with Herbed mashed potatoes and peas.






Add this to your list of recipes for using Egg Plant. It is soooo good.

Blessings,

Fried Egg Plant Italian Style

Scripture to Live By:
 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  John 14:1-6
