My first posting for Tasty Tuesday! Yummo mama!
Eggplant Lasagna (serves 4)
1 med sized eggplant-cut into think strips lengthwise (brown lightly in olive oil)
1 jar prepared pasta sauce (or 2 cups of your own homemade)
2 Cups each mozzarella, shredded and provolone, shredded
1 large egg mixed into 1 Cup cottage cheese
1 # ground sirloin, browned and broken up
Preheat oven to 375*
In a baking dish (8X10 is perfect) spread thin layer of sauce on the bottom. Top with slices of eggplant, then mozzarella cheese (1/2), ground meat (!/2), spoon fulls of cottage cheese mix (1/2) and repeat the layers. Ending with all of the provolone cheese generously on top of the last bit of sauce.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the eggplant is soft and the cheese is nicely melted and lightly browned.
I serve with garlic toast and salad........no pasta here, the eggplant is the pasta!
