I selected this lasagna because of it's ease to fix, satisfying to almost anyone, and I know that is nutritionally good. This dish can be divided into portions and frozen for later on. I serve a simple salad on the side along with garlic bread.

I whipped this up pretty quick and easy. Instead of frying the eggplant I broiled it.The dish turned out tasty and very low fat and healthy

I made this recipe as part of a freezer meal pack I make for my parents, who not longer cook on their own. I divided the recipe into thirds and made it in 3 disposable loaf pans. Got rave reviews

I tweaked this recipe a little due to a lack of ingredients in my fridge - guess I should check first next time. I omitted the mozarella (because I didn't have any), substituted half a red onion - finely diced, for the chives (again, because I didn't have any), and added a fresh bay leaf. I also added some lasagne sheets to bulk it up a little. I was a little unsure how to use the last 2/3rds of the tomato sauce so I presumed it should be layered too. Very easy to make and very flavorful. I will definitely make this again!
