I am trying to eat a bit healthier lately. This dish is healthy. It is low-carb. Yet it is very flavorful. I came up with this dish as a way to cut out carbs. If you like Italian food. Give this one a try. Enjoy!

Rinse and dry eggplant. Peel eggplant and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Place slices on oiled sheet pan. Place under broiler. Broil until light golden brown. Flip and broil other side until golden brown.
In an 8 x 8" pan. Cover bottom with some of the sauce spead because it will be thick. Cover with half the eggplant slices. It's okay if they overlap slightly. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese on top of eggplant. Spread cottage cheese.
Top eggplant with ground chicken. Place dollops of sauce on top, and spread the best you can. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
Top with the remaining eggplant slices. Top with the rest of sauce and spread evenly. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place in 350° oven about 45 to 60 minutes until cooked through. Cover with foil laying over top. Do not cover tightly with foil. Remove from oven and serve.
