cut, to garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place eggplant in a colander and put salt on it to sweat out the liquid. After 10 minutes dry off the eggplant.
Put the eggplant and garlic on a baking sheet, top with oil and salt and pepper. Place in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until roasted. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees.
Once roasted and slightly cooled, place in a food processor and pulse until mostly smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine the eggplant and garlic with the marinara and cheese. Mix and put into an oven-safe bowl.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Once cooled somewhat or room temperature, serve with crackers or vegetables.
