In a large baking dish place sauce on the bottom of the pan, then;
1. Eggplant slices
2. Sliced or Grated Mozzarella
4. Parmesan Cheese

The two things to keep in mind when cooking eggplant, especially firm globe eggplants, is that not only do eggplants hold onto moisture, they also absorb oil like a sponge. So if you’re not careful you can end up with something mushy and oily.
This Week We Prepared Eggplant Parmigiana

Who are these Ducks you speak of?
DuckinaPot was started in 2016 when the three ducks working in a small office in Southern California decided that eating a fast food lunch or ordering out from the local restaurant was just too boring, bland, monotonous and expensive. We wanted something different. So one day we decided to prepare a hearty made from scratch lunch at the office. Soon after, we wanted to share our recipes with friends so we created DuckinaPot.com. We started off with simple panini sandwiches and easy tortilla wraps, then graduated to slow cooker meals. Soon after, we decided to step-it-up by developing and preparing recipes that we have never prepared, or sometimes have never eaten before.
Fast forward to today, we put together a unique and delicious meal every Wednesday. No more leaving the office for lousy hamburgers or soggy fast food sandwiches.
So now you can find the ducks in our conference room every Wednesday enjoying a delicious lunch with our visitors and friends. The Ducks invite you to join us by checking out all of our recipes and giving us your feedback. We always appreciate your ideas for improvement. If you have a favorite recipe that you make, don’t hesitate to send it to us. We will be sure to give it a go. If you decide to prepare one of the DuckinaPot recipes, please share your thoughts about it. Also, if you are ever in the area on a Wednesday, we invite you to drop by for a lunch we hope you will never forget.
