Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8- by 8-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, add the eggplant and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender but not mushy, about 10 minutes; drain. Add the garlic, basil, and parsley; stir to combine.

Spread the ziti in the bottom of the prepared baking pan and top with the eggplant mixture. Sprinkle evenly with the cheese. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese melts, about 25 minutes.
