Baked Eggplant Parmesan

One of the items that Costco used to carry was Michael Angelo’s baked eggplant parmesan. It was quite good and you could eat half of it and still stay on your diet. On the WW plan, it would only cost you about 5 points. A good deal for that much food. But it disappeared from the Costco shelves. Not willing to let go of one of my favorite foods, I contacted Michael Angelo’s to ask what happened. Apparently, there was a contractual dispute with Costco and Costco discontinued carrying all Michael Angelo products. The baked eggplant parmesan was made only for Costco so it was totally no longer available.

Just recently, at my local grocery store, they started carrying Michael Angelo’s baked eggplant parmesan in single serving size. Hurrah! I thought. But they changed the formulation to include ground chicken in it (for some unknown reason) and that not only upped the calories but really upped the fat content. It still makes a reasonable dinner size-wise and calorie-wise (390) but the fat is now 18 grams, which is a lot. Why, oh why, Michael Angelo’s couldn’t you leave a good thing alone?!?
