Saturday nights can sometimes be a whole bunch of hype. ESPECIALLY when you have to make a reservation, drive, valet, wait, sit, wait, blah blah blah. So to shake it up a bit, I decided to have a girl’s night in: my treat. The treat being a lovely home-made Eggplant Parmesan (did I mention under 500 calories).  So here is our story told through a delicious and easy recipe time-line..bon appetit!!

WHAT YOU NEED: ( grabbed everything for roughly $20 at Trader Joe’s…because honey bees LOVE organic and to save some moolah)

  • 2 Eggplants
  • Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • Marinara Sauce (TJ’s has an amazing selection…beeeee creative!)
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Shredded Mozzarella (beeeeee greedy)
  • Parmesan

EASY BREEZY STEPS THAT WOULD MAKE YOUR MAMA PROUD:

  • To begin, prepare two mixing bowls. One with the bread crumbs (2 cups) and one with the beaten eggs (my cardio that day).  Check out the video..
  • The eggplant will stay in the oven, four minutes on each side. Keep a eye on it though, you want it to be just brown on top (we are NOT sunbathing ladies). Next..
  • Layering with the sauce and cheese…
  • Directions say to leave the dish in the oven for 55 minutes..alter depending on your serving size…
