- 1 large Eggplant, sliced lengthwise into 1/8 inch slices
- 2 cups of Basic Marinara Sauce
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 cup Part Skim Ricotta
- ½ cup fresh Shredded Whole Milk Mozzarella
- 1 Egg
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped Basil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- ¼ cup of Parmiggiano Reggiano plus extra for sprinkling on top
1) Preheat a grill pan to high and preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2) Brush the eggplant slices with the olive oil and grill for a few minutes on each side. Once cooked set aside to cool.
3) In a large bowl, combine the ricotta with the parmiggiano, egg, half of the shredded mozzarella and the basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
