Dee-Lish-Us! Took me quite a while to prepare but it was well worth the wait. It is absolutely divine.
This is a definite keeper!! Took a little longer to prepare, I salted the eggplant and let it drain for a few hours before I starting cooking, but well worth it. My BF loved it and didn't even realize there weren't any noodles until I mentioned it after we ate. Fantastic recipe, thank you!
Fabulous! I recommend adding the red wine, it gave the dish a nice flavor.
OMG!!! That turned out so FANTASTIC!!! YUMMY YUMMY!!! I used fresh spinach and mushrooms. I did not add the fennel seed, wine or vodka. I also used a slotted spoon when I added the meat sauce (this helped it not to be soupy). I also added a third layer of eggplant, etc. DELICIOUS!!!
Soooooo good! Hearty, healthy and on SBD this is exactly what you want without cheating on your diet. I've made this twice so far and it was great both times. Wonderful flavors! The only complaint is that the prep time is way off. I spent the better portion of 30-45 mins prepping everything before it even made it to the baking dish. It was well worth it but we had to eat dinner much later than anticipated. I will be making this again and again....and again! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
My husband and I were fasting during Orthadox lent and I wanted to make a lasagna that was low in carbs, and great tasting. Well this one nailed it big time. I made some changes to it...like I added veggie ground instead of the meat. I followed the recipe, but added more spices that were indicated in the original recipe. I used 3 eggplants so that I would get more a traditional looking lasagna. I omitted the ricotta as that has more calories and fat and used low fat cottage cheese, just stain it before you use it as this will make it thicker. I used fresh spinach and did not steam or sute, just chopped it up and added to the cottage cheese along with the eggs and some mozzerella cheese. The assembaly was like your classic lasagna, but put the spinach mixture on the bottom and the veggi ground in the middle. Top the veggie ground with another layer of eggplant and add some plain tomatoe sauce, and more cheese. It was amazing and we loved it. My husband has never had veggie ground and he could not believe how good it tasted and how amazing this lasagna was. This will be a keeper in our house.
My mother and I decided to go on the South Beach Diet together. We made this recipe last night and it was AMAZING! The house smelled so good and the taste was wonderful. We really enjoyed this!
It was nice but it's nothing spectacular. Maybe because I used ground beef so it tasted like the pasta sauce I make normally but I didn't think it would make much difference.
