Eggplant Parmesan



To good times with great food & drinks,I was making our vegetarian lasagna the other day and had some left over eggplant.  I decided to make up a batch of eggplant Parmesan as a starter for our pre fixe dinner that evening.  It was such a hit I have added it as a recurring item.  Easy and tasteful and a yummy fall bite to start the meal.  Hope you enjoy.

To good times with great food.
