If you have been searching for a diabetic-friendly eggplant dish, look no further! Eggplant Parmigiana is a layered baked dish, with slices of golden-fried eggplant layered with Italian tomato sauce. The addition of parmesan and provolone cheeses guarantee that it is full of flavor and so satisfying!
Eggplant can take extra time to prepare, so it requires some planning ahead. One way to make this dish work for a weeknight dinner is to prep the eggplant the evening before. The eggplant could be sliced, salted and drained, then fried, and refrigerated. The next evening, prepare the quick beef and Italian tomato sauce, layer with the eggplant and cheese, and bake for 30 minutes.
Another way to make it work is to prepare it on the weekend when there is a little more time.The dish makes eight servings, and leftovers are perhaps even more flavorful the second time around!
