My vegetarian step-daughter loves this recipe and asks me to make it whenever she's in town. Even better, my hubby, a meat and potato man, loves it. I follow the recipe but I spice it up with a dab or two of ground red pepper, depending on the yield (I make enough for 4 people). Once I accidentally sliced the eggplant vertically making large coin shaped pieces. That actually turned out nice as it was easier to serve that way.

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to high, then turn down to med just before you put the eggplant on.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. Peel and slice eggplant lengthwise (about 1/4 inch wide) (you can stripe it or not peel it if you prefer).
  4. Brush or spray eggplant with olive oil and season with some of the seasoning.
  5. Grill eggplant 5 min a side.
  6. While eggplant is grilling combine 1/4 cup of the mozzarella, the rest of the seasoning, egg (optional), parmesan, ricotta, 1 tsp marinara, and garlic in a small bowl.
  7. Once eggplant is cooked you can put it together.
  8. Spray casserole pan with olive oil (optional but it prevents sticking).
  9. Drizzle some sauce at the bottom and make one layer of eggplant (3 slices fit in mine).
  10. Cover each eggplant with about a tablespoon of the cheese mixture and some shredded mozzarella.
  11. Repeat layers with rest of eggplant. Mine made 2 layers and I pourde the rest of the sauce and cheese over the top.
  12. Bake until bubbly.
