Delicious and easy dish. Good for people who like lasagne but trying to cut back on carbs. If you have a George Foreman grill (or similar) grill eggplant slices for a few minutes or until tender. You can also buy already sliced and grilled eggplant to make it easier. I use a grill for the eggplant and lite sour cream with great results.
