Quickie Eggplant Bake

We love our Marinara Sauce (Basic Pasta Sauce) recipe so much that it is basically in the fridge all the time. If there is ever a week where Bree is looking for something to do (rare, but it does happen) then she will whip up a batch, because she knows it is appreciated and very useful!

This recipe is so simple and so yummy. I do love a good eggplant recipe. The trick to enjoying eggplant is over cooking it, and salting it well in the beginning. Don't skimp on the time, it just makes it all the more delicious.

I hope you are all over the Marinara Sauce thing. If not, get on with it today and try some of these amazing creations;
