Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 6-8
  • 10-12 slices whole grain bread - day old (or dry out in a 350 F oven for a few minutes)
  • 1 jar favorite tomato sauce
  • 8 oz shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 small eggplant, sliced in ¼" slices
  • 1 zucchini, sliced lengthwise into ¼" slices
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced lengthwise into ¼" slices
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven 375 F.
  2. Spread about ¼ cup tomato sauce in the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan. Line the bottom of the pan with the dry/day old bread slices - you may need to tear some apart to fill in the gaps.
  3. Spread another ¼ cup tomato sauce on top of the bread. Top with ½ cup parmesan cheese.
  4. Layer on sliced eggplant in one layer followed by another lay of zucchini and yellow squash. Top vegetables with more tomato sauce and about ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper.
  5. Repeat with another layer of bread topped with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. Add a final layer of eggplant followed by zucchini and yellow squash. Sprinkle on remaining salt, pepper, more tomato sauce and a lot of mozzarella cheese.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 40 minutes covered. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and melted!
