Heart Healthy Eggplant Lasagna Recipe
Preheat oven to 475°.
Lightly coat eggplant with cooking spray on both sides. In a baking pan, arrange eggplant slices in one layer and season with black pepper and oregano. Bake for 30 minutes, turning once halfway through baking. Remove and reduce oven to 375°.
While eggplant is baking, in a medium bowl combine ricotta cheese, egg, basil and mozzarella cheese, reserving 1/2 cup of mozzarella for later use.
Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce on bottom of a baking dish. Layer eggplant, cheese mixture, and 1 cup of tomato sauce. Continue until complete.
Spread remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and Parmesan on top. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting.
