This recipe is so delicious and full credit for it goes to my youngest sister Kelsey! She made this for me the first time about a year ago and I can’t get enough of it! It is a super simple meal to make but it is so delicious! I was so surprised when she first made it for us, I had never really seen her cook before and it seriously is so amazing, she did a great job!
When I was at the grocery store I was in search of fresh veggies that we haven’t tried before. I came across purple potatoes and this really cool zebra striped eggplant! I thought that they looked beautiful and they were delicious as well! They both tasted just like the normal versions but its fun to switch it up every now and then!
The first step would be to wash your veggies and then slice up the eggplant into equal sized slices so that they cook evenly. Then pre-heat your oven, dip each slice into an egg white and then bread with Italian breadcrumb. Place slices on a baking sheet and bake for ten minutes. At the ten minute mark take the tray out and flip each slice and continue baking for ten more minutes. When the second ten minutes are up take out the eggplant and start to assemble the slices with tomato sauce and cheese and then place back in the oven at 400 degrees and wait for the cheese to get nice and bubbly! Once the cheese melts your are all done! You can serve this with whole grain pasta or a fresh salad.
When I made this I measured everything out to my specific calorie needs for the day so I used a 1/2 cup of sauce and 1/4 c of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 c of the breadcrumbs. This is a delicious meal and even though I didn’t eat it with pasta I was so full! The recipe will be to feed 2-3 but you can make as much as you want!
I used Rao’s Marinara Sauce which my sister insist upon using with this recipe! If you don’t want to make your own sauce and want something really quick that you can pick up at most grocery stores. I highly recommend this sauce it is so delicious and great regular pasta and we even make homemade pizzas with it!
1 Large Eggplant
