Grilled Eggplant with Cherry Tomatoes and Mozzarella Cheese

WOW My house smells wonderful! Great vegetarian dish with salad, brown rice and loaf of crusty Italian bread. Eggplants were a good deal at Sprouts and I had to buy a few, it seems like I can always come up with a yummy way to prepare them. Will Max eat it? Probably NOT


2 medium eggplants, unpeeled and sliced
olive oil
1.5 pints cherry tomatoes cut into halves
1/2 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp. capers
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Brush eggplant slices with olive oil and pan fry/grill until browned
Arrange grilled eggplant in baking dish
Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in saute pan, add cherry tomatoes and garlic, cook until soft
Add capers
Top eggplant slices with tomato mixture, mozzarella and parmesan cheese
Bake in 400 preheated oven for 20 minutes
