Ingredients

  • 2 large eggplants — sliced 1/8" thick (I used my mandoline to create perfect eggplant slices.)
  • coarse salt
  • 15 ounces part-skim ricotta
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese — save some to sprinkle on top
  • 4 cups homemade tomato sauce or your favourite sauce
  • 16 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese — shredded
  • 2 tablespoons parsley — chopped, for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on a clean surface.
  3. Sprinkle the slices with coarse salt, and set aside for 10 minutes. Remove the excess moisture and salt with a paper towel.

  4. In a greasy grill pan, place the eggplant slices, and grill for about 3 minutes per side. The pictures above illustrate these 2 steps. (Please, don't skip the steps 3 and 4. They are very important to avoid the lasagna becoming too soupy.)
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and an egg. Stir well.
  6. In a 9x12-inch casserole, spread some tomato sauce on the bottom.
  7. Place 5 or 6 eggplant slices on top to cover the sauce.

  8. Spread some of the ricotta cheese mixture over the eggplant slices, and top with the mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers until all your ingredients are used.

  9. Top with the sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan.

  10. Bake 40 minutes covered and then 10 minutes uncovered.

  11. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley.
