Not so traditional Eggplant Parmigiana

Super easy! :)

1 box of readily breaded eggplant cutlets from Trader Joe's®
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
minced garlic
small onion, chopped
olive oil
salt & pepper
Whole Wheat Penna pasta (boiled)
Parmesan cheese (Trader Joe's® sells it without animal rennet)

-Prepare the eggplant cutlets according to the instructions on the box right before you're ready to eat
- To make the sauce: Heat a tablespoon of oil oil in a sauce pan, add onion, when onion starts to soften add the garlic. Add some fresh basil leaves if available. Now you can add the crushed tomatoes, and you can add a little bit of water so the sauce is not too thick. Bring the sauce to a boil, then add some salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and simmer for about 20 minutes.

And there you go! you have a delicious, healthy and nutritious meal in minutes! Enjoy! :)
