  2. Use a spoon to hollow out seedy inside flesh of zucchini. Roughly chop the insides and set aside.
  3. Brush zucchini halves with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and bake for 20 minutes, or until soft throughout.
  4. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, sauté garlic and onion until they begin to brown. Add chopped zucchini and eggplant. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.
