Ingredients

2
eggplants, large and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
olive oil, extra virgin
3 Tbsp
oregano, dried
salt and pepper
1 lb
tomatoes, chopped
4 large clove
garlic, minced
6 oz

COOKING TIP

if you prefer a milder garlic taste in your dishes, try roasted garlic or microwaving the minced garlic in a little extra virgin olive oil for about a minute, then add to your recipe.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brush the eggplant with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano; salt and pepper to taste.
2
Place on a baking sheet in a single layer and place about 6-inches under a hot broiler. Broil on one side until brown and tender. (if brown before tender, you can flip them over, but it's not necessary). Repeat until all eggplant it browned.
3
Preheat oven to 400F.
4
Lightly grease a 13x9 casserole/baking dish with ollive oil.
5
Spread just enough tomatoes to cover the bottom of the pan lightly.
6
Add a single layer of eggplant, then top with a light layer of tomatoes.
7
Sprinkle with garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese (in that order). Continue layering until you end with parmesan cheese on top.
8
Cover and bake for about 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
9
OPTIONAL - Uncover and bake about 5 more minutes to brown cheese more if desired.
10
Serve immediately or allow to cool until room temperature before serving.
