Grilled Eggplant Parmesan




Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Serves 2

1 large eggplant - cut into at least 6 half-inch rounds
6 to 8 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
1 bottle of your favorite tomato sauce
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Freshly torn basil

Brush each side of the eggplant rounds with olive oil, and salt and pepper the rounds. Place the rounds on the grill on medium-high heat. Allow the eggplant to grill around 10 mins on each side - just until the eggplant begins to char. Then add a slice of mozzarella to each slice of eggplant. Cover the grill and allow the mozzarella to melt. Once the mozzarella has melted remove the eggplant from the grill.

To assemble one serving of the eggplant parmesan, add some of your heated tomato sauce to the bottom of a dish, add one eggplant rounds, add tomato sauce on top of that, and repeat the process until you have three rounds with sauce drizzled on the top. Garnish with basil.

Enjoy!
