Equipment

Ingredients

Eggplant

  • 2 medium eggplant
  • Olive oil spray

Cheese Mixture

  • 30 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

For Topping

  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Roast the Eggplant

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Peel the eggplant and slice to ¼ inch thick. Salt and let drain on kitchen towels for 30 minutes.
  • Blot dry.
  • Place the eggplant in a single layer on a baking sheet. Spray well with olive oil — roast for 25 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 375.

Make the Cheese Mixture

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan, eggs, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Assembly

  • Place ½ cup of the meat sauce on the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • Arrange a layer of eggplant over the sauce. Top with ricotta mixture and then more meat sauce. Repeat layers, ending with the sauce mixture.

Bake

  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Uncover. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan, and cook for 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
