Baked Eggplant Parmesan Casserole

Convection (True Convection) or Convection Bake Mode

Eggplant Parmigiana is a little labor intensive to prepare but by using Convection to cook the eggplant slices at one time you eliminate the most labor intensive step which is frying the slices individually. The sauce is prepared while the eggplant is cooking then the casserole is assembled with the layers of sauce, eggplant and cheese….so easy, so delicious.
