Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Slice the eggplant crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Sprinkle eggplant slices with salt; place on a paper-towel-lined plate and let stand for 10 minutes. Pat with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
Brush or rub a little olive oil on each side of the eggplant slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking stone. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in oven for 7-10 minutes, or until eggplant is hot and starting to cook down.
Meanwhile grab a skillet, add 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil and sauté the garlic and onion until soft (about 3-4 minutes). Add tomato sauce and spinach to the skillet and cook for 1-2 additional minutes until mixture is warm and spinach has wilted.
Remove the eggplant slices from the oven, top each with the onion and spinach mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and chopped oregano. Place in the oven for approximately 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Serve immediately with more fresh oregano and crushed red pepper
