I absolutely adore eggplant parmesan. All that ooey gooey cheesy saucy comfort food deliciousness…..what’s not to love? Eggplants used to intimidate me until I discovered the secret to good eggplant texture. Do you want to know what it is? Salt. Lots and lots and lots of salt. Weird, huh? I know. But it works.

And while eggplant parmesan might seem like a complicated dish, this version is pretty darn easy thanks to a not-quite-from-scratch sauce. I promise it is SO much better than the frozen stuff!

3 medium eggplants
4 eggs
3-4 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
olive oil
cooking spray
1  24 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
1  14.5 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Step 2:  Place eggplant in a colander and sprinkle generously with salt. Use way more than you would eat! Get the pieces really covered as much as possible. Let sit for approximately 30-45 minutes, then rinse and dry well.
