    1 (1-pound) eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices
    3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup dry red wine
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 small zucchini (about 4 ounces)
    1 small yellow squash (about 4 ounces)
    1 large red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise and seeded
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano


Place eggplant slices in a colander. Sprinkle evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss well. Let stand 10 minutes. Rinse slices thoroughly; dry with paper towels.

Combine vinegar, wine and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 8 minutes).

Prepare grill.

Trim ends from the zucchini and yellow squash; slice each lengthwise into 4 (1/4 inch thick) slices. Flatten pepper pieces with hand. Brush eggplant, zucchini, squash and pepper pieces with oil; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Place pepper pieces, skin side down, eggplant, zucchini, and squash on a grill rack; grill 8 minutes or until tender, turning once.

Drizzle with 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic mixture. Top with one pepper piece. Tope with one eggplant slice and drizzle with 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic mixture. Repeat procedure three times with remaining eggplant, cheese, squash, zucchini, peppers and balsamic mixture. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Really great. I let the balsamic/wine reduction with the sugar get a bit syrupy and it looked great drizzled on the stack. Dynamite taste. The goat cheese and herbs had the perfect creaminess with just a hint of tang. This is going to appear on my table regularly. - 9/22/09
