This lasagna is a take on the traditional. Instead of noodles, it uses sliced eggplant. Instead of ricotta, it uses goat cheese. It is delicious!!!

I have never before reviewed a recipe online, however, this was so good, and so simple that I felt I had to. The only thing I added was cooked, sliced, turkey italian sausage to make it a little more filling for my teenage boys. Even my middle one, who claims to hate eggplant loved this dish, and finished the leftovers the next day! A keeper for sure! Read More

This dish is very simple and quick to put together (although it does take a good hour to cook). I used about half the cheese to cut down on calories and found that it was still very flavorful because of how strong the goat cheese flavor is. Great meal and surprisingly filling. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it was delicious and easy but I am still giving a couple of recommendations. Make sure you cook it at least 60 minutes... my eggplant was borderline cooked in a couple of places. I only used about 8 oz. of the goat cheese (as recommended by others) and added parmesan cheese to the top of mine at the end which I thought it needed. Next time I will add a light layer of parmesan and mozzarella to the goat cheese on top before cooking. And I will cook it 70 minutes to be sure the eggplant is completely cooked. It's just as good as my eggplant parm recipe without the extra step of breading and frying the eggplant before assembling... love skipping that step! Read More

I had received the eggplant, tomatoes, onions, and garlic from a food pantry. I slow simmered those last three to make the sauce, it was rustic, flavorful, and easy. I couldnt afford the goat cheese because I had to make a large batch so I could have dinner and lunch for the week. I quadrupled the recipe and used a large container of fresh mozzella balls. It took the whole hour to bake, but it was worth it. Cheesy, saucy. healthy, goodness. Next time I will use my vegetable peeler to make long thin slices of the eggplant and use a firm cheese i can slice long and thin too. I know it will take longer to layer, but I think the results will be well worth it. Read More
