Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant sliced into 12 sheets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt divided
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 28 oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cut the eggplant into 12 thin slices with a mandolin. Place the slices on a thin, clean kitchen towel. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt. Let sit for 10 minutes. Turn the slices over, sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt. Let sit for another 10 minutes. Blot the salt and water from the slices.
  • Meanwhile, brown the ground beef in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining salt, onion powder, oregano, and basil.
  • When the meat is fully browned, add the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and garlic. Stir well. Cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Add a spoonful of sauce to the bottom of a 9"x13" casserole dish. Add three slices of the eggplant. Top with 1/4 of the sauce, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese, 1/4 of the mozzarella, and 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Add two more layers of ingredients. Top with only last layer of eggplant, a thin layer of sauce, and the remaining cheese.
  • Cover the dish with tin foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the tin toil and baked for an additional 10 minutes. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • You can replace the eggplant with zucchini
  • Don't skip the salting step or the final product will be very watery
  • You can replace the homemade sauce with jarred sauce, but be sure to check the nutrition label to avoid unwanted carbs.
