Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450°F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper and grease with olive oil. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

Slice the eggplant into ¼-inch thick slices. Arrange the slices on the baking sheet and spread one teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Step 3

Roast for approximately 30 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and reduce the heat to 400°F.

Step 4

Arrange a layer of roasted eggplant on the bottom of a greased 1-quart casserole dish.

Step 5

Spread half of the marinara sauce on top and sprinkle with half of the shredded mozzarella. 

Step 6

Repeat these steps one more time, finishing with mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese on top of the casserole. (See notes 1.)

Step 7

Bake the eggplant casserole until golden brown, around 20 minutes.

Step 8

Allow 10 minutes to cool and serve. Enjoy!
