Stuffed Eggplant



Eggplant Shells




  1. Mix together bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Dip each slice of eggplant into egg and then dredge in bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Dip each slice of eggplant into egg and then dredge in bread crumbs to coat. Set aside on wax paper.
  2. Heat oil in large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add garlic. Sauté garlic until it begins to brown. Fry eggplant slices in batches until browned on both sides, very pliable and somewhat soft, about 6 minutes on each side. Remove to wax paper.
  3. Combine all filling ingredients and beat with a fork for about 1 minute to fluff. Place a dollop of the filling on the bottom of each slice of eggplant and roll up each piece. Wooden wooden picks may be used to fasten, but with a little care and the aid of a flat spatula this can be avoided. Arrange rolls on baking dish.
  4. Heat oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and stir about 5 minutes or until onion is soft and starts to turn golden. Reduce heat to medium and stir in tomato paste, basil, oregano and tomato. Return heat to medium-high and slowly stir in wine. Reduce heat to medium when mixture begins to bubble and sprinkle sugar on top. Stir to mix and remove from heat.
  5. Pour sauce over eggplant and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Place in oven on highest setting until cheese bubbles and begins to brown, about 7 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.

Serves 6.
