Move over Chicken Parmesan and Eggplant Parmesan, there is a new kid on the block! Fried Green Tomato Parmesan is a main course dish full of scrumptious flavor right out of the garden!
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray an 8×8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
1. Follow the instructions for my Fried Green Tomato recipe from my Tasty Kitchen Recipe box.
2. Drain the fried green tomatoes on a paper towel. (I didn’t, but if you want you can add salt and pepper to taste).
3. Brown Italian sausage in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once it’s browned, drain off the grease. Add 8 ounces marinara (spaghetti) sauce, either store-bought or homemade and mix to combine. Set it to the side.
4. In an 8″ x 8″ baking dish, lay 4 fried green tomato slices. Top each with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the marinara meat sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup Italian blend cheese. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning.
5. Layer with the remaining fried green tomatoes. Top with remaining marinara sauce. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Top with all the remaining Italian blend cheese.
6. Bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake another 5 to 8 minutes until bubbly and nicely brown.
Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
I don’t use salt and pepper in this recipe, but you may want to depending on your taste.
Easy to make this into a vegetarian dish, just leave out the sausage. Casserole is wonderful!
Eggplant in enchiladas? Oh yeah! This is a healthy take on a traditionally heavy Mexican dish. A cream made of pepitas replaces the usual cheese and makes this a totally satisfying vegan dish. Don’t be scared off by the prep time, most of that is in the soaking of the pepitas. Once you try this dish you’ll be wondering where these enchiladas have been all your life!
Cauliflower and Italian sausage come together with just a few ingredients for a filling and healthy one-pot dinner everyone will love! Suitable for paleo and gluten-free diets as long as the sausage meets those requirements!
