Ingredients

    ingredients

    1 cup pizza sauce
    1 cup mozzarella, shredded

Tips

Option: Grill the eggplant instead of baking them.

Note: Eggplant can get bitter with age and salting it helps draw out that bitterness. If you are using younger eggplants you can skip the salting and save some time.
