- 8 slices eggplant
- 1/2 lb ground sausage
- 8 mushrooms sliced
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 green bell pepper diced
- 1/2 tsp salt plus more for salting the eggplant
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup pizza sauce no sugar added
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
Slice the eggplant into 8 round slices (crossways, not lengthwise) about ¼ “ thick - a little less than 1cm. Sprinkle salt on the slices and let them sit for 5 minutes. Then pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the beads of water and excess salt.
Meanwhile, brown the sausage and mushroom in a skillet over medium-high heat. When almost cooked through, add the onion, bell pepper, salt and pepper. Cook an additional 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
Spread the pizza sauce onto the eggplant slices. Top with equal amounts of the sausage mixture and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly on top.
