Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large eggplant sliced into 1/2" rounds (about 10-12 slices)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups homemade marinara sauce
  • 5-6 slices of fresh mozzarella cheese*
  • 6 large fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • balsamic glaze and chopped basil for serving if desired

Instructions 

  • Preheat the grill to medium for the eggplant, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees to bake the eggplant stacks.
  • Brush the eggplant slices top and bottom generously with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until tender and grill marks form. If the eggplant seems dry, brush with a little more olive oil. Flip the eggplant, and repeat on the other side. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Place half of the eggplant slices on a foil lined baking sheet and top with some marinara. Place a slice of fresh mozzarella over the marinara, then place a basil leaf over the cheese. Top with another slice of eggplant, followed by more marinara sauce, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Remove from the oven and place on a serving platter, and garnish with freshly chopped basil, if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • The marinara may be made in advance to make this a true 30 minute meal, or use your favorite store bought sauce.
  • The eggplant may also be grilled in advance and stored in the refrigerator until you're ready to assemble the stacks.
  • Grated mozzarella cheese may be substituted for the fresh mozzarella.
