Ingredients

The Goodies

  • 1 medium eggplant washed and sliced thinly
  • 1 pound ricotta cheese full fat
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups gravy (or pasta sauce) 1 - 2 cups
  • 16 slices of fresh mozzarella sliced thin

Instructions

Do it Now!

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F
  • Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and place all the slices of eggplant on the pan
  • Bake for 20 minutes
  • While the eggplant is baking, start on ricotta cheese mixture
  • In a medium bowl, add ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, oregano and salt and mix until it is combined
  • Ladle some gravy in the bottom of a medium sized baking dish
  • Lay four eggplant rounds on the gravy and dollop some cheese on the eggplant
  • Ladle some gravy on cheese and lay a piece of mozzarella on top
  • Repeat until you have at least 4 layers of eggplant, end with mozzarella cheese layer
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Plate an eggplant stack
  • Eat eggplant stack
  • Smile at other eggplant stacks
  • Enjoy

Notes

I find that 4 layers is the maximum layer before it topples.  I also did not use all the ricotta cheese mixture, so the calorie count is probably less.
