Directions

Prepare a cookie sheet with fat free cooking spray and set aside. Place eggplant slices on prepared cookie sheet. You will have 2 different batches. Spray eggplant slices with cooking spray. Set aside. In a non-stick skillet heat oil over medium heat, add onion and garlic. Cook until softened. Add oregano, 1 tsp. salt, and pepper. Cook for one minute. Add tomatoes, increase heat to high, and cook until thickened, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and add basil. Broil eggplant slices, 1 batch at a time for 3-5 minutes per side, until brown. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Layer eggplant slices in a 1 1/2 qt. baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese. Spread the tomato sauce evenly on top of the cheese. Bake uncovered until cheese is bubbly, 10-15 minutes.
