Lee's Eggplant with a kick!
This recipe is a family pleaser!

A friend asked for my eggplant recipe. She remembered how much her husband had enjoyed it at a holiday party. Even her children ate every bite not knowing it was eggplant!

Recipe: Easy Eggplant Parmesan
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: 40 min.
1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
2-3 eggs
1-2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup olive oil
3 cups spaghetti sauce
6-12 leaves fresh basil chopped
1/2 Lbs. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup – small container- low fat ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cooking Directions:
Arrange a layer of eggplant slices in a bowl. Sprinkle generously with salt. Continue layering and salting all eggplant slices. Let stand 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry. Dip each eggplant slice in beaten egg, and dredge with breadcrumbs. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Fry eggplant in hot oil about 2 minutes per side until golden. Drain on absorbent paper. Preheat oven to 350° F. Arrange half the eggplant slices in the bottom of a lightly oiled baking dish. Spread half the sauce over top. Sprinkle with half the basil, half the mozzarella and half the Parmesan and half the ricotta cheese. Repeat layers. Bake 20-25 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and crispy on edges.
