Layer polenta and sauce for easy eggplant parmesan
Most people think eggplant parmesan is a labor-intensive, multistep dish. These quick stacks of roasted eggplant slices and purchased cooked polenta dispel the image; our twist on the classic dish includes tomato sauce and mozzarella for a full helping of savory Italian flavor, but we’ve cut the long preparation time and the heavy dose of oil and cheese. With a salad and a simple dessert, this is a weeknight menu con brio.
