Cheesy Eggplant

Great to make ahead and freeze for a quick microwave dinner.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Season the eggplant with salt and pepper and roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray and cover the bottom with eggplant slices.
  3. Ladle half of the tomato sauce over the eggplant and top with half of the tomato slices.
  4. Sprinkle the tomato slices with a tablespoon of basil, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spread 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese over the tomatoes. Sprinkle with half of the mozzarella cheese.
  6. Repeat the layers (eggplant, sauce, tomatoes, seasonings, ricotta, and mozzarella).
  7. Bake for 20 minutes; increase the oven heat to broil until the cheese turns golden.

Taste was great; serving not as firm as I expected. Less tomato sauce next time. Good overall, will make this again.

This sounded awesome but... just felt like it was lacking flavor. I might try this again, but add many more spices and slice the eggplant a lot thinner. It has potential!

I made this eggplant last evening for supper and was appreciated by all.I breaded the eggplant with italian bread crumbs before baking; it gave it a great flavor. I know it added calories but, since it was sooo low calorie to start with I thought it would be ok!
