Eggplant Parmesan Casserole

Eggplant Parmesan Casserole
I love eggplant in dishes, esp bharta. Bharta is more like scrambled eggplant and is very similar to how the Mexicans have their eggplants. Baigan or eggplant is really versatile and can be used in a  lot of casseroles. This eggplant parmesan casserole recipe is inspired from an episode of The Good Cook, where the chef loved parmesan! This casserole can be had with noodles, with garlic bread, soup sticks or just like that with fork, served in a big plate!
