Grilled Eggplant with Marinara Parmesan

Grilled eggplant with olive oil with a grating cheese marinara sauce. A perfect side dish while grilling out with your favorites Grilled Garlic Chicken, even great on top of your favorite pasta!

Sliced and on a oil brushed aluminum foil to avoid sticking



1 eggplant sliced thick with skins on
2 cups marinara sauce homemade or store bought
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
aluminum foil
olive oil
optional shredded mozzarella
Wash eggplant, slice thick. Arrange eggplant on a piece of aluminum foil that has been brush with olive oil. Drizzle more olive oil over the top. Grill until eggplant is soft and browned. Mix the minced garlic, grating cheese and (mozzarella if preferred) into heated hot sauce and add to the top of the eggplant, serve hot with Chicken or over favorite pasta. Make a great sandwich with leftovers.

I adore eggplant. It's so easy and 95% of the time comes up pretty darned tasty in any dish.

Grilled with light marinara and of course cheese makes a perfect Eggplant dish. Love it!
