Grilled Eggplant Parmesan Stacks

Today is the last day of Farmer's Market week, and I'm finishing up with one of my favorite veggies, eggplant!  I love eggplant parm breaded and fried.  I love it breaded and baked.  But how about grilled? I saw this recipe on the Taste of Home site, and I knew it would be the perfect way to enjoy eggplant parm without heating up the house.

This comes together so quickly, and I didn't change a thing, except to use sliced cherry tomatoes instead of full sized ones.  I loved getting all the flavors of the traditional dish but in a lighter, healthier way. If you don't have a grill, you definitely can do these inside on a grill pan and finish it under the broiler, or on a panini press. Thank you so much to Joann P. for sharing her recipe.

I hope that you've enjoyed #FarmersMarketWeek as much as I have!  Thank you again to Ellen and Christie for hosting, and to all of the #FestiveFoodies for sharing their amazing recipes!
