Here`s a versatile recipe that can be served as a first course, a side dish or even a meatless main course. For extra flavor, add sautéed mushrooms, diced salami, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese or sautéed strips of bell peppers to the topping before baking.
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes


1 large eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
3/4 to 1 cup bottled Italian salad dressing
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 cup (about) purchased marinara sauce
12 slices (about) provolone cheese
12 tablespoons (about) Grated Parmesan cheese

Lightly oil heavy large baking sheet. Brush both sides of 12 eggplant rounds generously with dressing; arrange on prepared sheet. Sprinkle rosemary and oregano over. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Preheat broiler. Broil eggplant on baking sheet until brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. (Can be prepared 1 hour ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)

Preheat oven to 450°F. Top each eggplant slice with 1 rounded tablespoon sauce. Place 1 provolone slice atop each eggplant round and trim to fit. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Bake until cheeses melt and eggplant is heated through, about 5 minutes.
