  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and scoop out some of the flesh to create a hollow boat. Dice the scooped-out flesh of the eggplant and set aside. Place the eggplant halves in a baking dish.

  • Next, add the garlic and reserved chopped eggplant and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the crumbled meatballs to the vegetables and stir to combine; season with the dried Italian herbs, salt and black pepper. Add the marinara sauce and stir to combine all ingredients. Continue to cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Turn off the heat and using a spoon scoop the vegetable mix in the eggplant halves in the baking dish.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove the aluminum foil after 30 minutes and top each eggplant with shredded Parmesan cheese.
  • Place the uncovered dish back into the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Remove from the oven and serve with additional warmed marinara sauce.
