Melanzana alla Parmigiana (Perfect Eggplant Parmigiana)

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
This classic Italian dish from Sicily is often simply referred to as 'Parmigiana' by the Sicilian locals. The richness and depth of flavor that you get from this authentic version is well worth the extra effort. Serve eggplant Parmigiana with nothing more than crusty bread and a green salad.

Not Too Saucy Eggplant Parmesan

An easy, quick, and cheap vegetarian dish. Just enough pasta sauce to make a delicious eggplant Parmesan. No soggy eggplant here! Both the veggie and meat lovers in your life will love this recipe.

Eggplant Parmigiana Caponata

Rating: 4.5 stars 40
I made this recipe to combine the tastes of eggplant parmesan and caponata, an Italian eggplant appetizer. It is quite rich and uses a lot of olive oil. It is best served with linguini or some other kind of pasta on the side. It is a bit sweet and a bit salty with a nice texture.

Eggplant Parmesan - Gluten-Free

After becoming gluten-free I could no longer order eggplant Parmesan from one of my favorite restaurants. This is the best GF replica I have made yet--absolutely delicious and everyone will enjoy.

Air Fryer Eggplant Parmesan

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
These eggplant Parmesan rounds are oil free and grease free, yet they are crispy and crunchy. All due to cooking it in an air fryer. They are good eaten right out of the air fryer or topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Either way they are delicious.

Quick Eggplant Parmesan

Rating: 4.5 stars 137
This eggplant goes well with some steamed green beans and French or Italian bread. Although the recipe calls for seasoned bread crumbs, you can use regular bread crumbs if you wish. Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes according to your taste.

Healthier Eggplant Parmesan II

Rating: 4.5 stars 71
I like this recipe because it is not fried and very tasty. I like to make it healthier by using whole wheat breadcrumbs and reducing the amount of fat. Also, by using mostly egg-whites instead of whole eggs I am able to reduce the cholesterol level.

My mom would make this when I was young, and it was always a favorite. Serve with a crisp green salad and garlic bread.

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan
Rating: 4.5 stars 155

A twist on the old standby! I like to use my homemade tomato sauce for this recipe, as well as using crushed croutons as the bread crumbs. A hint for shelling the eggplants - use a grapefruit spoon to start!
