Mini Eggplant Pizzas; Low Calorie!

I've been working on my 25 by 25 list, again! In doing so, I made a new recipe; Mini Eggplant Pizzas.

New Recipe 6 of 25:

Mini Eggplant Pizzas

Servings per recipe: 4
Nutritional Information: 119 calories; 7.5 fat; 9 carbs; 5 protein

Ingredients:

1 eggplant - 3 inches in diameter, peeled and cut into 4 half-inch thick slices
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Directions:

1. Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees F. Brush both sides of the eggplant with the oil and season with the salt and pepper.

2. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until browned and almost tender, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.

3. Spread 1 tablespoon of pasta sauce on each eggplant slice. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.



These mini eggplants were a big hit in my house! The only change I will be making next time is that I will actually follow the directions and remove the skin prior to baking. My husband wasn't really a fan of the skin, but I didn't mind it, myself!
