How to make it

  • Trim and peel the eggplant.
  • Trim the stem ends of the zucchini.
  • Cut the eggplant and the zucchini lengthwise into slices about 1/3 inch thick.
  • Salt the slices lightly on both sides and let stand 15 minutes.
  • Pat dry. Brush both sides of each slice lightly with oil.
  • Arrange the eggplant and zucchini on separate sheet pans.
  • Bake the eggplant in an oven at 425°F until the bottoms are brown.
  • Turn over and bake another 15 minutes.
  • At the same time, bake the zucchini until softened but still somewhat crisp, 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the vegetables from the oven and let cool.
  • These slices will serve as noodles for the lasagna.
  • Mix together the ricotta, parmesan, egg, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Ladle a little tomato sauce into a half-size hotel pan, 10 × 12 inches.
  • Spread it across the bottom.
  • Lay the eggplant slices in a single layer over the sauce.
  • Add the ricotta, carefully spreading it in an even layer over the eggplant.
  • Add the zucchini in a single layer.
  • Cover with half the remaining sauce.
  • Arrange the mozzarella slices over the top. Sprinkle the mozzarella with a little of the basil.
  • Cover with the remaining sauce.
  • Sprinkle with the second quantity of parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 375°F until hot and bubbling.

    Great idea for a lasagna! I've used one or the other vegetable before, but never in a combo! High 5!
