Eggplant Caprese

Eggplant
is on sale this week at Harris Teeter, so I picked one up with plans to
make eggplant parmesan for dinner. However, once I got home I decided I was no
longer in the mood for eggplant parmesan, so I searched around Pinterest
for other eggplant recipe options. Nothing really stood out so I decided to get creative. Without further adieu, I give you Eggplant Caprese!

 

The dish was given 4 thumbs up {2 from me + 2 from the hubs}. I will definitely be making this again.

Eggplant Caprese

Ingredients:

{1}
large eggplant, sliced half inch thick

{6}
tbsp olive oil

{5}
tbsp balsamic vinegar

{2}
cloves garlic, minced

{2}
large tomatoes, sliced half inch thick

{1}
cup spaghetti sauce {homemade sauce recipe}

{1}
cup grated Mozzarella cheese

salt
and pepper to taste 

Directions:
Pre-heat grill
{or skillet} to medium high. In a large bowl, mix oil, balsamic vinegar,
garlic, salt and pepper. Generously brush the eggplant slices with mixture. Grill each side for 5 minutes. Place grilled eggplant slices on
plate and spoon pre-heated pasta sauce over eggplant. Top with cheese. Garnish with basil.
Serve warm.

Makes about 6 servings

{Optional:
serve Eggplant Caprese on bed of spaghetti noodles}

Enjoy!

    Looks yummy but Brad wouldn't go for it. He hate tomatoes like that. I'll cook it for myself! 🙂
