4 sprays nonstick cooking spray
2 tsp tomato paste
1/4 cup shredded nonfat mozzarella
1 ring of red or yellow pepper, chopped
Slice lean ham
How to Make It
Heat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the eggplant on the sheet. Spray each 4 times with nonstick cooking spray, and season with salt and black pepper. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden and tender.
Top the eggplant with the tomato paste, mozzarella, pepper, and ham. Bake for 5 minutes, or until golden and melted. Serve with the arugula.
Smart tip: These keep well and taste good at room temperature. For a veggie alternative, swap a couple of sliced olives for the ham.
