Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan has become one of our more recent dinner items. It is great with Chicken Parmesan and a nice salad on the side. Eggplant has become one of the few vegetables we can get Little T to eat. We use it in a few other dishes now too.

Leave off the chicken and you have a fabulous side dish to go with Chicken or Eggplant Parmesan. […]

My favorite is eggplant parmesan, but my mom had a recipe for a stuffed eggplant that was pretty amazing. And of course there’s always ratatouille!

Thanks for sharing! I look forward to more A to Z goodness.
