I've had 2 eggplants in the fridge and didn't have any homemade sauce to make eggplant parm. (That's the only way V will eat it - with homemade sauce!)
So, it was time for a new eggplant recipe!
-1 eggplant (3 inches in diameter, peeled and cut into 4 half-inch thick slices)
-4 teaspoons olive oil
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
-1/4 cup pasta sauce-1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1-Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees F.
2-Brush both sides of the eggplant with the oil and season with the salt and pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until browned and almost tender, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.
3-Spread 1 tablespoon of pasta sauce on each eggplant slice. Top with the shredded cheese.
4-Bake until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes.
6-Thank me for your delicious meal idea. ;)
