Using three or four recipes I have for lasagna and/or eggplant I came up with this dish. We loved it and I hope you do as well. It is a pretty healthy version.

How to Make Eggplant Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, add onion and sauté until translucent.
  2. Add garlic, carrot, bell pepper and green chilies; stir for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add Queso Blanco cheese, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and parsley and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in another skillet (I used a griddle pan) and cook slices of eggplant until they turn light brown on both sided.
  5. Pour some of the pasta sauce in a 9x13x2" baking dish. Enough to cover the bottom of the dish.
  6. Put one layer of the eggplant on the sauce then layer the vegetable/cheese mixture over the eggplant. Follow with another layer of eggplant.
  7. Pour remaining pasta sauce over the dish and top with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake covered at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
    Remove dish, uncover, and add a little more mozzarella over it along with a little basil and parsley.
    Place back in over to melt the cheese and serve.
