Anything with the word Parmesan in it is a win for my family. Eggplant Parmesan, my 3-Ingredient Grilled Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Spaghetti Squash and my most viral recipe ever on the blog: Parmesan Tomato Zucchini Bake.

Since I have gotten so much awesome feedback on my Parmesan Tomato Zucchini Bake, I wanted to make something similar with eggplant. There is something so pretty about layering vegetables with their different colors!

This recipe is super easy and takes about 5 minutes to prep and then, you just throw it in the oven and wait for it to finish baking. Serve it with pasta or a sauteed chicken breast. This meal is perfect for summer because you can use summer's freshest tomatoes and eggplant. Yum!

As anyone who cooks knows, scrubbing a dish that had melted cheese in it can be difficult. We have been using the Scotch-Brite Scrub Sponges for years which I purchased at Kroger and love how they make cleanup easier. Washing dishes is one of my least favorite chores in the world and anything to make it quicker and easier is worth it to me.

For dishes where the food is really stuck on, I like the green Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges. They help get off tough, baked on messes 50% quicker than other brands. They are good for pots, pans and oven racks. When I don't need to scrub something as much, I like the blue Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponges. These are best for non-stick cookware, counter tops and cook tops. I also use them to wash down the counters, microwave, etc. to keep my kitchen looking clean.

Instead of breading and frying the eggplant, I just poured the marinara sauce on the bottom of the pan and drizzled the eggplant in a little bit of olive oil which both help to soften and cook the eggplant. You won't even miss the breading with the delicious flavors of the Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
