6 Minute Meals: Eggplant Parmesan - Alicia Vitarelli reports during Action News Mornings on March 12, 2018. (WPVI)

For this week's 6-minute meal and a deal, Alicia Vitarelli gets in the kitchen at Amis Restaurant, with Vetri family chef Brad Spence.

The 6 Minute Meal:

Vetri Family Chef Brad Spence's Eggplant Parmesan (this is a lighter, healthier version that's easier and quicker to prepare)

Tomato Sauce (Chef's Tip: Find a local Italian deli that makes their own)
Bread Crumbs
Parmesan Cheese
Parsley (Fresh or Dried)
Cooking Oil (Olive or canola)
Salt & Pepper to season

Preheat broiler on high heat
Pre-heat oil in pan on high heat
Cut an eggplant longwise into 4 thin slices

Season eggplant slices with salt and pepper
Cook eggplant slices for 1 minute on each side in hot pan
Add a touch more salt to release the liquid (Chef Tip: add more oil if needed; it will cook up)

Build a Double Decker:
Transfer 2 slices of eggplant to another pan
Top with tomato sauce, bread crumbs & parmesan cheese
Stack remaining 2 slices of eggplant on top
Spoon on more tomato sauce and sprinkle with more cheese
Put pan in broiler for about 90 seconds, until crispy
Top with fresh cut or dried parsley, sprinkle on a little more cheese
Serve & Enjoy
