Eggplant Parmesan

Talk about a dish that could stand to lose a few: The Italian-American favorite of eggplant, tomato sauce, and cheese—spelled variously "Parmesan," "parmigian," or "parmigiana"—knows no nutritional boundaries. We've revamped this tasty casserole to help it lose the heaviness, not to mention the grease, of the old standard. You'll have room for dessert.
