Eggplant Lasagna

 

Ingredients:

2 large eggplants
1 tsp. sea salt (plus more to season)
Olive oil (drizzle to taste)
5 cloves garlic (minced)
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
2 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes

1 large egg
15 oz. ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated parmesan
2 tsp. Italian seasoning

 

Directions:

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut off ends of eggplant; discard. Slice eggplant lengthwise (1/8-inch). Sprinkle with sea salt on both sides, let sit for 10 mins, then pat dry. Lightly grease a pan cook eggplant 2-3 minutes per side then and set aside.

 

In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil on medium-low, add garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 2 minutes (until garlic is fragrant but not browned). Add tomatoes and salt; stir. Simmer sauce for 10 minutes, add basil and stir. Remove from heat and set aside.

 

In a medium bowl, beat the egg and mix in ricotta, 1.5 cups of mozzarella, ¾ cup of parmesan, and Italian seasoning. In a 9×13-inch baking dish add enough sauce to completely cover bottom. Add a layer of eggplant, covering the bottom of the dish completely and finally, add a thin, even layer of ricotta mixture. Repeat with remaining ingredients, finishing with a layer of sauce. Add remaining mozzarella and parmesan.

 

Bake 45 minutes and then turn on broiler until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly (about 5 minutes). Remove from oven and rest for 15 – 20 minutes. Enjoy!
