Today I have two recent recipes to share with you that I recently posted on Instagram. First up is Eggplant Stacks. I made this for our meatless Monday meal this week and they were so good. I was originally going to make eggplant parmesan but wanted something a little lighter. I found a few recipes on line but kind of made this up with ingredients I had on hand. It turned out great and was almost even better the second day I ate it.

- 4 small eggplants sliced
- 1 ball fresh mozzarella cheese
- 1.5 cups feta cheese
- 1 cup pesto
- 1.5 cups marinera sauce (about 1/2 a jar)
- 3 tomatoes sliced
Cut the eggplant into slices and then lay flat on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and let sit 30 minutes. This will help absorb moisture. Blot the tops with a paper towel too.
Heat a grill pan with olive oil over medium. Drizzle eggplants with olive oil and cook on grill pan about 3 minutes a side. You want the eggplant to soften up. Remove and lay on paper towels to drain extra oil off.
In a baking dish layer one layer of the eggplant. Then top with tomato slices, pesto and feta. Then do another layer of eggplant, tomato and marinera sauce. Top all stacks with slices of fresh mozzarella and basil.
Bake at 350 degrees about 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
This is what it looked like before I baked it. I can't wait to make this again! Such a great way to use up eggplant.
Several of you also wanted the antipasto roll up from this past weekend that I made for our boat ride. I found this recipe on pinterest. The only thing I changed was I didn't use ham. I just used pepperoni and salami. I also used whole wheat olive oil shells instead of flour. These were a huge hit with everyone. A great appetizer I will make again!
