TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 slices peeled eggplant (1/4 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup sliced yellow summer squash (1/4 inch thick)
  • 1/3 cup sliced zucchini (1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 slices red onion (1/4 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini and onion. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Add Italian seasoning and cayenne; toss to coat.

Broil 4-6 in. from the heat or grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until tender and lightly browned.
