This is a combination of my spinach lasagna recipe and the concept of JackieOhNo's idea to use frozen eggplant cutlets and additional tweaking on my part. Thanks JackieOhNo for the brilliant idea.
- 24 ounces prepared spaghetti sauce, I use Bertolli Arrabbiata Sauce
- 14 ounces diced tomatoes, I use Muir Glen Fire Roasted
- 24 ounces cottage cheese, I use 2%
- 8 ounces no-boil lasagna noodles
- 16 ounces frozen eggplants, cutlets
- 4 eggs or 4 Egg Beaters egg substitute
- 2 -3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
