Ingredients

1 medium eggplant sliced

1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons milk

Dried Italian bread crumbs

Olive oil

6 ounces tomato paste

6 ounces white or red wine

Pinch dried oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1/2 pound mozzarella, sliced

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice washed eggplant 1/2-inch thick. Dip slices into the egg mixture and then into the bread crumbs, coat well. Grease a cookie sheet with olive oil. Arrange each slice of coated eggplant in one layer on the cookie sheet and drizzle each piece with olive oil. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. Check that the slices are golden brown, turn then and bake for another 15 minutes. They should be browned on both sides. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan dilute the tomato paste with wine. A good mix is a can of paste and a can of wine. Add the oregano, salt, pepper, and crushed garlic. In a baking dish arrange browned eggplant slices in 1 layer. Spread 2 tablespoons of sauce on each slice. Layer each eggplant with a slice of mozzarella and sauce until all is used. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
