Here’s a twist on an old favorite. Skip the breading and the calories and try our Grilled Eggplant Parmesan today. It can be on the table in less than 45 minutes and is the perfect side dish for chicken, beef or pork. I used just a cup of prepared marinara sauce and used the remaining sauce for a pasta dish to go with dinner.

To start off cut the eggplant into thick slices. Then I lay the slices out a cutting board and sprinkle with a little salt. This helps to remove some of the bitter taste sometimes a eggplant can have. Blot them off with a paper towel in about 10 minutes.

Spray the eggplant with cooking spray, then salt and pepper. Cook the eggplant directly on the grill until tender. This should take about 8 – 10 minutes. Then top with some of the warm sauce and cheese.
