Roasted Eggplant Parmesan


I have been enjoying cooking from Joy Bauer much more than I had expected.  She is known for her healthy cooking .  "As a monthly columnist for Woman’s Day magazine and the creator of JoyBauer.com, Joy continues to be a leader in developing and delivering fresh, cutting edge health content to millions."

She did not disappoint me with the recipes, I have chosen to make. Each one has been better than successful.  I plan to make a lot more.  She has many recipes also listed online for you to check out if you like healthy and tasty food, presented in a respectful way.
Roasted Eggplant Parmesan  (adapted from Joy Bauer)

Ingredients:

1 eggplant, ends trimmed
Kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
3/4 cup marinara sauce *
3/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
dried oregano, to taste

Method:

Preheat the oven to 400°. Liberally coat a baking sheet with oil spray.

Slice the eggplant into rounds (about 10 slices). 

Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. 

Mist the tops of the eggplant slices liberally with oil spray, and lightly sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper (omit the salt if you have high blood pressure). 

Bake for 20 minutes, or until eggplant is soft and golden brown.

Top each slice with about 1 tablespoon marinara sauce and 1 heaping tablespoon mozzarella cheese. 

Sprinkle the slices with the grated cheese, as well as oregano and crushed red pepper to taste. 

Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and bubbly.
