Eggplant with Marinara and Mozarella

I'm really not sure what to call this, other than delicious. It is warm, comforting, low-carb, and completely more-ish. Make sure to find (or make) a marinara sauce that you love, since it will be a major player in this dish!

I came up with this one afternoon when I wanted something hot and yummy for lunch. I set this up on the stove to bubble away. It simmered, covered, while I made some lunch for the kids. Once they were set up, my lunch was good to go! You can cook this either on the stove, covered, over medium low heat, or in the oven, at 300. Be careful in the oven, as the cheese can burn!

Eggplant with Marinara and Mozzarella
Serves 4

2 eggplant (Chinese, or American)
Marinara sauce (enough to cover the eggplant)
2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese

Slice eggplant, and layer in a cast-iron skillet. Cover with marinara sauce, and top with cheese. Simmer over medium low heat, or bake in 300 degree oven, until cheese is warm and melted, and the eggplant is cooked through - about 20 minutes.
