"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Pre-heat boiler. Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet. Mist the slices with cooking spray. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes or until golden. Turn the eggplant over and mist again. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and garlic. Broil for 1 minute, or until golden, and set aside.

Heat a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, or until no longer pink. Add the tomatoes (with juice), onion, bell pepper, mushroom, Italian seasoning and black pepper, stirring to break up the tomatoes. Add jar of pasta sauce. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange 6 eggplant slices in the bottom of the dish. Top with the chicken mixture. Arrange the remaining 6 eggplant slices over the chicken. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.

Cover with foil and finish cooking, or refrigerate until the next day or wrap with foil, label and freeze for up to 3 weeks. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes or until heated through. To cook frozen casserole, bake covered at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.
