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

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on a clean surface.
  • Sprinkle the slices with coarse salt, and set aside for 10 minutes. Remove the excess moisture and salt with a paper towel.
  • 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.)
  • In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and an egg. Stir well.
  • In a 9x12-inch casserole, spread some tomato sauce on the bottom.
  • Place 5 or 6 eggplant slices on top to cover the sauce.
  • 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.
  • Top with the sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan.
  • Bake 40 minutes covered and then 10 minutes uncovered.
  • Let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley.
