Pesto Roasted Eggplant

I know most people don't like eggplant.  But I honestly think it gets a bad rap.  With the right seasonings and roasted in the oven eggplant can be a tasty and satisfying side dish.  I hope you will give it a try!

A wonderful and tasty dish to accompany any meal
1 eggplant, quartered and sliced into 1/2" chunks
2tbs extra virgin olive oil, preferably first cold pressed
1tbs dried pesto mix, soaked in 2tsp water for 1 minute

1. Preheat your oven to 400F.  In a small bowl, mix pesto mix and olive oil.  Using your (clean) hands, spread evenly across the eggplant so they are all coated with seasoning.
2. Place eggplant on a nonstick foil lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (when they are brown on one side turn them over and brown them on the other side).
3. Enjoy hot.
