Lasagna that sound great. I've never made it. but it would be a great change from all the pasta. Got a recipe?

If my eggplants ever make it past the bugs and critters this year I'm going to give this a shot.
Looks good and easy. My kind of recipe for sure.
Thanks.

I basically make eggplant lasagne the same way I do with noodles. To prep the eggplant, I slice it, brush with EVOO, and grill for 3-4 minutes each side (or you can put on baking sheet and put in the oven, 400 or so, for 2-3 minutes each side). Assemble the same as you would using pasta. I do the same with zucchini. I do like to add spinach to the ricotta when I make eggplant or zucchini lasagne. Maybe someone has an actual recipe, I just wing it.

Or, try Sir_Lion's dish:

Sounds wonderful Kadesma We have only just started eating eggplant and were looking for some ideas on how to cook with them.

We will certainly be making these next week when I buy more eggplant

Here's another eggplant recipe you might want to check out - I've made it many times. It's baked, but is very crispy and tastes like it's fried. First time I made it, I found it too salty, so now I double the breadcrumbs and halve the Parmigiano Reggiano. I also add some dried herbs to the breadcrumbs and use a variety of cheeses on top.

I printed out a couple of recipes from here for ideas, and am going to wing it. I've peeled and sliced (1/4") and baked the eggplant which were sprinkled with seasoned salt and Italian seasoning.

I'll be working on the rest this morning and am writing it all down.

Roughly, my plan is substituting the eggplant for noodles, using some leftover spaghetti sauce and frying up some hamburger and ground sausage.

Cheeses will be a combo of cottage cheese and egg, plus mozzarella and parm.

Thanks for the heads up. I like the sound of this and will try putting one together. It's been years since I made lasagna and a veggie one really makes my mouth water.

Here 'tis:

Eggplant Lasagna - Discuss Cooking - Cooking Forums

I found that my cottage cheese had gone bad, so I substituted little slices of cream cheese.

I also found a couple tablespoons of Gorgonzola crumbles so I added that to the cheese layers too.

It's in the oven now. I couldn't wait for dinnertime.
