We’ve heard of far too many people who think they don’t like eggplant. That’s right, we’re going so far as to say that everyone likes eggplant, they just don’t know it yet.

Smothering anything in melty cheese is a great first step, which is where this simple eggplant parmesan recipe comes into play. We heartily suggest you make your own basic tomato sauce to go with this eggplant parmesan. If you need to save time and use a jarred tomato sauce, use a good one (we like San Marzano). This recipe is a crowd pleaser that’s easy to double for a dinner party.
