Monday Meal: Italian Style Roasted Eggplant

Do you try to do a meatless meal one day out of the week? I know we do. Today I have an easy eggplant recipe to share. Don’t be afraid of that big purple veggie. It’s delicious and easy to cook. I found this recipe while perusing Pinterest. It is now one of my favorites. I tweaked it a bit and made it my own.


Eggplant sliced in half vertically (one half for each person) drizzled in olive oil

Your favorite red sauce

Tomato sliced – I use Roma but you can use whatever you like

Parmesan cheese

Feta cheese – if you don’t like feta or maybe the kids don’t you can sub mozzarella or provolone


Broil the eggplant slices flesh side down on a baking sheet for 20 mins. Remove from oven and flip the eggplants over. Spread on the red sauce. Place tomato slices over the sauce. Sprinkle on Parmesan cheese. Top with your choice of feta, mozzarella, or provolone cheese. Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese is melted (feta will only melt slightly). And voila!

Have you ever cooked eggplant? I’d love to know your favorite way to enjoy eggplant.
