2 eggplants, cut into 12 slices each

1½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided ¾ cup whole-wheat flour

2½ cups fine dry whole-wheat breadcrumbs

3 tablespoons Italian seasoning, divided 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided Olive oil cooking spray

1½ cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided 4 tablespoons finely shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided Fresh basil Layer paper towels on a baking sheet. Place 12 eggplant slices on the towels and sprinkle with ¾ teaspoon salt. Cover with a double layer of paper towels. Place remaining eggplant slices and sprinkle with remaining salt. Cover with paper towels and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 425°F with baking sheets on the upper and lower racks to heat. Blot eggplant slices with paper towels to remove moisture. In separate shallow dishes, pour flour and egg whites. In a third dish combine breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning. Dip each slice of eggplant in flour, shaking to remove excess. Then dip in egg, letting excess drip off. Then press into breadcrumbs. Set each coated piece on a plate or cutting board. Remove heated baking sheets from oven. Add 2 tablespoons oil to each, tilting to coat. Place half of coated eggplant slices on each baking sheet. Make sure slices do not touch. Generously coat the tops with cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip slices over and continue baking about 15 minutes, until golden brown. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes and remaining Italian seasoning. Coat two 8-inch-square baking dishes with cooking spray. In each dish, spread ½ cup of tomatoes mixture. Add a layer of 6 eggplant slices over sauce. Spread with 1 cup of tomatoes and sprinkle with ¼ cup mozzarella. Top with remaining eggplant, 1 cup tomatoes, ½ cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Serve garnished with basil.
