Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 medium bell pepper, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 small unpeeled eggplant, (1 pound), diced (2 cups)
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced (1 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) Italian-style stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tube (16 ounces) refrigerated plain polenta (or any flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese (3 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook onion and bell pepper in skillet 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in eggplant, zucchini, salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Stir in tomatoes, breaking up with spoon; reduce heat to low. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2
    Spray rectangular baking dish, 11x7x1 1/2 inches, with cooking spray. Cut polenta into 1/4-inch slices. Arrange slices on bottom of dish, overlapping and cutting to fit where necessary. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Spoon vegetable mixture evenly over top.
  • 3
    Cover and bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and parsley. Bake uncovered about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  • Eggplant is an exceptional choice for a low-fat eating plan. There are only 20 calories in each 1/2 cup. Keep in mind that a pound of uncooked eggplant will yield about half a pound when cooked. Use part-skim mozzarella cheese to lower the fat in this dish.
