Why I Love This Recipe

We had friends coming to dinner one week and I was torn about what to make. I didn't want it to be too difficult because I was in the middle of doing a lot of baking for a party.

Then, I got my Cook's Illustrated magazine in the mail. Eureka! An eggplant parmesan recipe. I love EP but it takes so long to fry in batches before baking. Apparently the people at CI agreed, because they went to their test kitchens and created a recipe that does NOT need to be fried! I know this is going to become a new favorite of mine:

Ingredients You'll Need

2 medium eggplants into 1/4" thick rounds.
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
8 slices white bread
1 c. Parmesan
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 c. flour
1 tsp. pepper
4 large eggs
3 T vegetable oil
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 T olive oil
4 medium garlic cloves minced or pressed
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup coarsely chopped basil
4 oz (1 c.) shredded mozzarella


Cool 10 minutes, scatter basil over top, and serve. Pass remaining 1 c. of tomato sauce separately.
