I think I'd call this more Eggplant Pizza than Eggplant Parm! After searing the eggplant in the cast-iron skillet, I just layered some marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese on top. I was truly shocked at how delicious this was.
To be honest, when my mom first suggested it, I thought it was going to be pretty bland and boring. Yet it really was delicious! (I am getting a little bit sick of my mom always being right.…)
It took all of about 45 minutes to prepare. I picked up another eggplant at the grocery store on Saturday and made this again Sunday! And it was just as good the second time.
