  • Add oil to a large nonstick skillet, place over medium-high heat, and brown 3 cloves minced garlic. Add onions, saute till clear.
  • Add tomatoes, oregano, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Cover and cook about 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Discard Bay Leaf.
  • In a large pot of boiling water, cook macaroni 8-10 minutes, just until tender. Drain.
  • Add 1 tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet and brown 3 cloves minced garlic. Add scallions and mushrooms and saute. Add macaroni to skillet and fry for a few minutes, just till macaroni gets crispy.
  • Pour the macaroni mixture into a 10x10x2 inch baking dish.
  • Place tomato mixture in processor and process until smooth. Spread on top of the macaroni.
  • Arrange 3 flat bowls in a row. In the first bowl add the white flour. In the second bowl crack in the egg white.
  • Add a sprinkle of garlic, salt, paprika, parsley, etc., and whip together. In the third bowl place the bread crumbs.
  • Coat the eggplant slices with the flour, then the egg whites, and then the breadcrumbs. Place eggplant on a tray coated with cooking spray, broil for about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Place eggplant slices on tomato mixture; bake at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
