  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on a clean surface.

  • In a grill pan, place the eggplant slices, and grill for about 3 minutes per side. Please, don't skip the steps 3 and 4. They are very important to avoid the lasagna becoming too soupy.
