Cuisine: Italian 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
Servings: 1 to 2

Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant, sliced thin 
  • 4 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 ounces reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can (14 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, blended in a blender (you will use 1/2 cup for this recipe)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place sliced eggplant on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Place half the eggplant in a small baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Top with 4 ounces of ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of the tomatoes that have been blended, 1 ounce of reduced-fat mozzarella, 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasonings.
  3. Add the rest of the eggplant on top of that and top with the other 1/4 cup of blended tomatoes, the other 1 ounce of reduced-fat mozzarella, 1/2 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasonings.
  4. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until the cheese is lightly browned and melted. 

Note: If you prefer, don't blend the tomatoes and use them whole.
