      2 eggplants (2 1/2 lb), cut in 1/2-in.- thick rounds
      Nonstick spray
      1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
      1 jar (26 oz) marinara sauce (about 3 cups)
      1 1/2 cups (6 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella
      1/2 cup grated Parmesan

      PREPARATION
      1. You’ll need a broiler pan with rack and a shallow 3-qt baking dish. Heat broiler.

      2. Place half the eggplant on broiler rack; evenly coat with nonstick spray then sprinkle with half the pepper. Broil 4 in. from heat 4 to 8 minutes per side until lightly browned and tender. Repeat with remaining eggplant and pepper.

      3. Heat oven to 350°F.

      4. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce in baking dish. Line with 1/2 the eggplant. Spoon on 1 1/4 cups sauce; top with 1 cup mozzarella, then remaining eggplant, sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan; cover with foil.

      5. Bake 45 minutes or until bubbly. Let rest 15 minutes.

      Plan ahead: You can assemble through Step 4 and refrigerate up to 1 day before baking. If you bake it straight from the fridge, add about 10 minutes to baking time.

      Serves 6
