eggplant parmesan casserole

eggplant parmesan casserole
  • 2 large eggplants
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups prepared marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup water, plus more as needed
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cut 5 crosswise slices from center area of each eggplant, about 1/2-inch thick, to total 10 slices. Peel and dice remaining pieces of eggplant.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until oil is very hot. Sprinkle eggplant slices lightly with a pinch of salt and cook in hot skillet in batches until slightly softened, about 3 minutes per side. Set eggplant slices aside on paper towels.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet and cook garlic for about 10 seconds; add diced eggplant and season with a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes. Saute until eggplant is softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in marinara sauce and water. Turn heat to medium-low and cook until eggplant is tender, about 15 minutes; stir occasionally. If sauce gets too thick, add a little more water.
  5. Combine ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, pepperjack cheese, a pinch of salt, and a pinch black pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Spread about 2 tablespoons cheese mixture over each eggplant slice. Fold eggplant slices in half to enclose the cheese mixture.
  6. Spread about half the sauce into an 8x8-inch baking dish. Lay folded eggplant slices in a single layer into the dish. Spread remaining sauce over eggplant slices.
  7. Combine bread crumbs, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a bowl; mix thoroughly. Spread crumb mixture over eggplant casserole.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and crumbs are browned, 35 to 40 minutes.
