Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 eggplant, sliced thin
  • 4 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place the sliced eggplant on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until softened, about 20 minutes.

  4. Bake in preheated 350-degree F oven for about 40 minutes until the cheese is lightly browned and melted.
