Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 medium eggplant, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium zucchini (about 1/2 pound), sliced
1 pound fresh ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 stalk celery, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh chopped basil (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
3/4 cup tiny bread cubes
1 teaspoon olive oil
Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

Peel and slice eggplant. Sprinkle with salt and let stand 10 minutes. Rinse well, pat dry and cut into cubes. Heat 1/2 cup olive oil in large heavy skillet; cook eggplant quickly, until lightly browned. Add onion, garlic and zucchini. Cook 3 minutes, adding more oil if needed.

Add tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, celery and basil. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is just barely tender.

Stir in Parmesan cheese and parsley. Place mixture in a 5-cup (2 1/2-quart) casserole. Brown bread cubes in 1 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle over top; sprinkle mozzarella cheese over bread cubes.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and cheese is lightly browned. Serves 6.
