Excellent Eggplant Parmesan

50 mins (prep 15, cooking 35)
9 ingredients
8-10 servings
This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe I saw on Throw Down, with Bobby Flay. This recipe is from Bobby Flay's challenger. I found the recipe on the food network website. The original recipe called for two eggplants, but I found that was too much. It also used 28 oz of Marinara sauce, but making it in a 9x13" dish, that was too little. The chef's recipe also said to use sliced, dry mozzarella, but I preferred grated. The original recipe didn't specify a pan size, so I made it in a 9x13" dish. You could, however, scale down the recipe and cook it in an 8x8 or 9x9" dish.
