Eggplant Lasagna!!




Tomato sauce

Lasagna noodles

Parmesan cheese

Mozzarella cheese


Oven: 350 for about 15 minutes


Cup up the eggplant however you wish (we just did slices) and sauté in a pan to get them a little soft. We also put the mushrooms in for a little too. We just seasoned with some salt.

While doing this, R cooked up the lasagna noodles. It’s difficult to tell how many noodles you will need, but it also depends on your preference: whether you like lots of noodles or just enough. We only have 8 noodles left in our box, so we didn’t have a choice. Haha. The hard part is pooling the noodles out after they’re cooked without ripping them or burning your hand. We set them out for a bit to let the water dry off a bit. Not sure if that makes a significant difference or not, but we didn’t want slimy lasagna.

We put some tomato sauce on the bottom before adding anything so make it easier to slide the lasagna out. Now, we had a little bit of jarred tomato sauce, so we supplemented with some canned tomato sauce and added a little bit of Italian seasonings.

Layer your lasagna however you wish. If I can remember correctly, we layered this way: noodles, eggplant/mushrooms, sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, noodles, eggplant/mushrooms, sauce. As it turned out, we had some tiny pieces of noodles left over because they didn’t fit in the pan and we used them to help decorate. Top with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. We added extra mozzarella slices and topped with the last of our tomato sauce.

Bake in the oven until breadcrumbs are toasty, or about 15 minutes. Yum!! Don’t forget your lactaid and antacid tablets!!! HA!
