    Lighter Eggplant Parmesan Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes Servings: 8 servings • Time: 60 minutes • Old Points: 6 pts • Points+: 8 pts Calories: 265.3 • Fat: 12.4 g • Protein: 14.1 g • Carb: 35.4 g • Fiber: 4.4 g   1 large eggplant (2 lbs) 1 tbsp olive oil 12 oz fat free ricotta 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Pecorino Romano 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped 1 medium egg 2 cups reduced fat mozzarella (I used Sargento) 3 cups homemade tomato sauce salt Start by making the sauce if you don't have any already made. While the sauce simmers, slice the eggplant into 1/4 inch thick slices. Lightly salt the slices and put in a colander to release excess moisture for about 1/2 hour. Lay on paper towels to soak up any extra moisture. Preheat oven to 450°. Brush eggplant lightly with olive oil on both sides and place on cookie sheets. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning half way through until eggplant is golden brown. In a medium bowl combine ricotta, egg, parsley and 1/4 cup of grated cheese. In a 9x12 baking dish, put a little sauce on the bottom of the dish and put a layer of eggplant to cover the bottom of the dish. Top with 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture, mozzarella cheese and sauce. Add another layer of eggplant and repeat the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and sauce until everything is used up. Top with sauce and the mozzarella cheese and the remaining grated cheese. Cover with foil and bake until cheese is melted and everything is bubbling, about 30 minutes at 400°. Remove foil and bake an additional 8-10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let it sit about 10 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!

    Made it last night, but I dredged each slice in egg wash, dipped in panko and cheese, then I baked the eggplant as directed. I looked at cooking light recipe for this idea. I also added crushed red pepper and used store bought sauce. Next time, I think I will sneak in tofu ricotta.served it with a salad and quinoa :)
