Put the flour and pepper into a plastic bag and add the eggplant slices, shake to coat the eggplant. Dip the slices in the beaten egg, then the bread crumbs, and fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Heat the tomato sauce and cook the spagettini. Pour the sauce over the spagettini, top with the fried eggplant and grated Parmesan cheese.
