Preheat oven to 350º. Take 1 eggplant, cut off both ends and take off skin using vegetable peeler. Cut into slices about ½ - ¾". You should get about 7-8 slices. Put to the side. In a small mixing bowl whisk 3 eggs. In another bowl, measure out 1.5 cups of seasoned bread crumbs (preferrably italian)! In a large fry pan heat on medium high heat ½ cup of olive oil. Once heated, dip the eggplant slices into the egg wash, then the bread crumbs, covering both sides then put into fry pan. Continue for the remainder of the slices. Brown on both sides. Take eggplant slices and arrange in a greased or I use baking spray on a 13x9x2" baking dish. Spoon out 1 tsp. of Vodka Sauce on each slice and spread. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. During the last 10 minutes remove the foil and generously add shredded cheese. Remove from oven and serve. This can serve 2-3 people as a main dish or a great appetizer!
