Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Okay, not exactly Parmesan, because I didn't have any Parmesan cheese, only mozzarella.
I grilled the eggplant early this afternoon, so I could put the rest of the dish together very quickly.

1 eggplant: (1 lb. appx): 100 calories
1 cup marinara sauce: 200 calories
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella: 300 calories
Makes 4 servings, 125 calories per serving

Cut the eggplant into 1/2 inch rounds and grill over high heat for about 7 minutes per side; let cool. Put a small amount of marinara sauce in a baking dish, add the eggplant rounds, top with more marinara sauce, then sprinkle each round with a generous pinch of mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 10 more minutes or until the cheese browns. Serve with pasta.

1/2 cup whole wheat linguine: 100 calories
1/4 cup marinara sauce: 50 calories
2 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella: 75 calories
