Vegetarian or not, you've got to try this one! I have even converted eggplant haters with this! It is SO good! Very forgiving too you can make ahead partially or completely and freeze or hold in fridge a day or until needed. Enjoy!

Wow, this recipe was absolutely AMAZING. I made a few changes, but nothing major. I cut the recipe in half and it made about 6-8 servings. I salted, rinsed, and dried the eggplant before baking (a MUST), it draws out moisture and changes the taste. I used a different type of sauce and omitted the red peppers because I'm not a fan of them (replaced peppers with extra eggplant). I also didn't use all of the mozzarella cheese, I just didn't need it. The directions are missing when to put in the second half of the mozzarella, so I just added it on top of the pesto. I also used soy milk, not cow's milk, and it was perfect. This is my new favorite lasagna recipe. Very easy and it would definitely please a crowd. I will be entertaining guests with this. Thank You for sharing!
