Eggplant Parmesan

Our garden in overflowing with Eggplants this year.  One of my favorite dishes to make with them is Eggplant Parmesan.  It's an easy to make skillet meal with few dishes to clean up afterwards. And, I love the way the Italian flavors pair with the eggplant.  Serve with a salad and your favorite glass of wine for one fantastic dinner.
