Eggplant Lasagna

When I started Weelicious Menus based on readers' wants and needs for more menu planning ideas I was beyond thrilled. Even for me, when I have a menu game plan for the week it makes buying and preparing meals so much easier, less time consuming and more efficient.

One factor I hadn’t taken into consideration were the amount of vegetarian families who would be using Weelicious Menus, so we created a version of meatless recipes that were simple to prepare while also being balanced, nutritious, satisfying and down right tasty!

We ordered Eggplant Parmesan at one of our favorite Italian restaurants recently and the kids went gaga for it. Layer after layer of eggplant with tomato sauce, ricotta and parmesan cheese throughout it felt more like a lasagna than the classic I generally expect.

Within days I was buying big globe eggplant to make my version of Eggplant Lasagna for dinner and to add to Weelicious Menus vegetarian plan. This Eggplant Lasagna has an added bonus by being gluten and egg free for those wanting to avoid certain foods, so it’s a win win all the way around! Serve with a Kale Avocado or Very Berry Spinach Salad and you’ve got a complete meal to suit everyone’s tastes!

Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant, about 2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 15 ounces low fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

3. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, parsley, parmesan cheese, and salt.

4. Pour a thin layer of sauce in a 9 x 9 inch baking dish.

5. Place a layer of eggplant slices on top of the sauce, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture, 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese, and 1/3 of the sauce. Repeat until you’ve used all the ingredients, and top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.

6. Cover with foil and bake until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 10 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown.

    You're such a huge inspiration! My daughter is a bit sceptical towards tomato sauce and gooey food, but today I'm going to get her involved in the kitchen with the cooking and hope this helps. Your lasagna looks so delicious!

    I'm with you: I way prefer this style of \"Eggplant Parmesan\" over the fried version.

    Can not wait to make this tonight! Question, I have a lot of eggplant from my garden. Can I freeze this dish? If so, before baking or after baked? Thanks!!!!

      I haven't tried freezing it yet, but I would freeze it before baking! Transfer to the fridge on the morning you'll be cooking it, and then bake it that night!

    Eggplant lasagna is such a great twist on the classic eggplant parm. And it makes so much sense too! Can't wait to try with gluten-free pasta. Great recipe!
