Salt and ground black pepper

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add the eggplant and grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until grill-marked and softened. Remove from the heat and transfer to a medium bowl.

Add the garlic, parsley, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste into the bowl and toss until the eggplant is well coated.

Layer the bottom half of each ciabatta piece with 3 slices Pecorino, 3 slices speck, and 3 slices eggplant.

Close each sandwich and press firmly. Enjoy!
