In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix red bell pepper, onion, and garlic in a large mixing bowl; season with basil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Drizzle half the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar over the pepper mixture; toss to coat the vegetables evenly.
  3. Brush eggplant slices with remaining olive oil to coat thinly.
  4. Spread about 1/3 of the pepper mixture into the bottom of a square glass baking dish; sprinkle with 1/4 of the mozzarella; top with a layer of about 1/3 of the eggplant. Repeat layering twice more. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese on top layer.
  5. Bake until the cheese is browned and the vegetables are bubbling, about 40 minutes.
  6. Let it sit for 5 minutes outside the oven.
  7. Garnish with fresh basil or parsley and serve.
