Ingredients

How to make it

  • Wash the eggplant, pat dry, we like the skin on for color and fiber
  • Cut off stem ends
  • Slice vertically as you would for an Eggplant Parmesan recipe
  • Then slice each long piec in half ( easiet to fit a smaller dish )
  • Spray cooking oil lightly on oven baking sheets ( 2 or 3 large )
  • Place on slices to fit sheet and spray or brush slices with oilve oil
  • Sprinkle on seasoning as much as you like, we like ours highly seasoned with garlic and herbs
  • Lightly Sprinkle on some grated cheese over slices
  • Roast in a 400F oven about 20 minutes or until slices are soft and slices get a bit browned, turning baking sheets at least once during cooking
  • Remove from oven
  • In a square casserole dish, place a layer of sauce on the bottom, then top with about 4 slices of eggplant ( remove with wide spatula carefully from the baking sheet ), sprinkle with mozarella cheese , more sauce and repeat layers to fill the dish.
  • End with the shredded cheese on top
  • Bake in a 350 F oven to melt cheese and heat well
  • Remove from oven and let sit a few minutes.
  • With sharp knife carefully cut into 6 pieces
  • Carefully remove to serving plate
  • Note: may be made ahead of time, chilled and reheated for better flavor and easier serving
  • I hope you like this healthier version!
