Eggplant Lasagna

Jump To Recipe
Someone asked me not long ago what type of food I like to cook best.  The southerner in me should probably say something like “fried chicken, of course!” but my absolute favorite is probably Italian.  I’m a pasta, cheese and sauce fanatic and there are about a million different things you can do with all three of those and not eat the same thing twice for a while.  Who doesn’t love a big ole pan of lasagna?!  This Eggplant Lasagna is missing a few of the standard elements of traditional lasagna, but it’s definitely not lacking in taste.
For the Eggplant Lasagna, I replaced the noodles with slices of grilled eggplant and since ya’ll know I’m not much of a meat eater these days, I kept the veggieness going with spinach and mushrooms.  You could always add in other veggies as well to really step it up, but I went pretty basic.  This was absolutely delicious!  And by that I mean I ate it for lunch and dinner until the whole pan was gone.  This is another great dish to make, split and freeze the other half for later.

    This sounds perfect, and I like that you grilled the eggplant without any breading! As soon as I’m done moving into my new townhouse, I will make this for dinner and be back to let you know what I think 🙂

      Good luck with the move Whitney! This will be a super comforting dish to curl up on the couch with. Rom-com, glass of wine and the move is a success.;)

    Thanks! The move was a success, and we are loving the new place! But on to the important topic…I loved this recipe, and I’m definitely gonna make it again. In fact, I just bought some eggplant today. Everything about it was perfect, and I loved the addition of mushrooms and spinach. Thanks for the awesome recipe 🙂
