Eggplant Parmesan

eggplant recipe, Italian food,

Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorite dishes when dining out. We don't go Italian that often, though. When it feels like it's been too long and we don't have plans to go out, then what? Simple solution: learn how to make it myself.  And, that's exactly what I did. Loved it!

2 eggs, beaten
2  cups dry unseasoned bread crumbs

3 cups Prego traditional spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
