Eggplant Lasagna

If you love eggplant and lasagna, you'll love this no pasta, no fry casserole.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Peel (or not) 1 large eggplant, slice it thinly into rounds. Some like to spread on paper towels and sprinkle with salt and let eggplant drain excess moisture.
  2. Spread rounds in single layer on cookie sheets (takes 2) sprayed with olive oil.
  3. Spray tops of eggplant lightly and bake until desired tenderness or crispiness. Remove from oven.
  4. While waiting for eggplant to cook, mix cottage cheese with 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg and 1 egg (optional). Also optional to use a hand blender to get a smooth consistency.
  5. Spread thin layer of sauce on bottom of small rectangular or square baking dish, layer eggplant, cottage cheese, sauce and shredded mozzarella, finishing with sauce on top.
  6. Sprinkle with extra mozzarella and remaining parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake in hot oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.

very good! just remember to be generous with the eggplant when you layer it to make it more firm and less messy when you cut into it! :)

This is a wonderful dish. My husband doesn't normally like eggplant, but he really enjoyed this lasagna. I will be making this again. :-)

Great recipe! I sliced the eggplant pretty thin. Next time, I will slice it thicker... so it doesn't get quite so lost in all of the sauce :) Very tasty, very saucy recipe!

This is wonderful! I don't typically cook with eggplant, but I will again!

The directions were vague. I would have preferred a little more direction (i.e. soecific cooking times, specific salt and pepper measurements). It turned out well but I will definetly tweak it next time.

Felt like baking instructions for the crisping of the eggplant needed better explaining; but this is fantastic! My grown daughter that never liked eggplant really enjoyed this as much as I did!!!
