Air Fryer Eggplant Parmesan
2 Eggplants (medium size)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1/3 cup
Tomato Puree or Crushed Tomatoes - large can
Spinach or baby kale - 2 cups packed
6 oz mozzarella (fresh or shredded)
Crushed red pepper 1 tsp (more if you like it spicy)
1 tsp dried oregano
Grated parmesan 1/2 cup
Fresh basil 1/2 cup
Directions for air fryer:
Preheat air fryer (on the air fryer setting if you have a multi-use gadget) to 390 degrees for 5 minutes while you prep
Slice the eggplant about 1/4 inch
coat the slices of eggplant with olive oil - don't be afraid to be generous
Once the air fryer is heated, place the slices in a single layer in the basket (you will need to do multiple batches so give yourself time)
Set timer for 6-7 minutes at 390 degrees, check on the eggplant, flip over and give it 1-2 more minutes. Keep an eye on your eggplant because it will depend on thickness of slices.
Put tomato sauce, oregano and red pepper in a saucepan and heat. Once simmering add spinach/kale and stir. Cook until wilted
Spread a thin layer of your kale-tomato sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, then layer some eggplant so they overlap slightly. Add 1/2 of mozzarella and parmesan.
Repeat with more eggplant, sauce and top with cheese
Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly/melted. Top with some fresh chopped basil.

Ingredients & Instructions:
used the entire garlic bulb & minced it in my mini food processor, 2 medium chopped onions, lots of Italian seasoning enough to cover the bottom of the pot, & saute in olive oil. Herein lies the flavor!
Once caramelized, add the sauce & then an entire bag of fresh spinach. Cook until spinach is done.
Layer a large pan with sauce, eggplant, sauce, eggplant, sauce etc. until it is all used up.
use one jar of sauce per eggplant so for this used 2 jars of sauce & 2 medium eggplants.
Cover & bake at 450 degrees. After 45 minutes check to see if a fork can penetrate easily. If not, cook longer.
have found that when I use the entire garlic bulb, lots of onion, & Italian seasoning, I really do not miss the cheese at all because there is so much flavor.
served with a salad, corn on the cob, & of course garlic bread to help sop up all the great sauce flavor on the dish. Bon appetite.

2 chopped garlic cloves
2 chopped seedless tomatoes
Oil for greasing
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons butter
2 shallow tablespoons of flour

Eggplant (Melanzana). If you make 2 pans of this, you can freeze some as well. I, of course, use about 10 eggplants for my party and make 4 to 5 pans of it.
2 large Purple eggplants
1 large jar of Pasta Sauce
1 9 x 13 inch pan
1 pkg of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Medium container of Ricotta Cheese
Peel the Eggplants and cut off the ends a little bit.
Then slice them, not long wise, but from one end to the other, in medium size slices. Cover the bottom of the pan with Pasta sauce. Lay the slices on top of the sauce till they fit in the pan. Take 2 tablespoons full of the Ricotta cheese and put it on each Eggplant slice. Then place another Eggplant slice on top of the Ricotta cheese slice. Pour the remaining Pasta Sauce over all of the slices. Pour the Shredded Mozzarella cheese over all the slices.
Bake in the Oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Don't burn it. With a fork check it to make sure the slices are not hard but soft. If they aren't, just bake for an additional 5 or 10 minute and keep checking. Take it out, cut it up and enjoy eating it.
