- Sprinkle each side of the eggplant slices with salt and pepper, place on the cookie sheet and mist with non-stick spray.
- Broil 15 minutes, then flip and bake 10 minutes longer.
- Reduce oven to 425°F and lightly grease a 9" square pan.
- Spread the reserved "plain" crushed tomatoes on the bottom of the pan.
- Layer 3 slices of eggplant, 1/3 of the cottage cheese mixture, 3 cooked noodles and 1/3 of the TVP sauce overtop.
- Repeat layers, rotating the direction of eggplant slices and noodles 90 degrees each time, until all the ingredients have been used.
- Cover lightly with foil and bake 25 minutes.
- Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese overtop and bake, uncovered, 10 minutes.
