Rinse eggplant slices; pat dry with paper towels. In a shallow bowl, combine eggs and pepper; place bread crumbs in another shallow bowl. Dip eggplant into egg, then coat with crumbs. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a large skillet, cook half of the eggplant in 2 tablespoons of butter for 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining eggplant and butter.
In each of two greased 11x7 inch baking dishes, layer half of the eggplant, half of the tomato sauce and half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes or until bubbly.

Traditional eggplant Parmesan involves salting the eggplant to "sweat" it, and frying it before baking. I took a few shortcuts and everyone liked it a lot. This dish can be made after a busy day at work. We had it with spaghetti on the side.
