In separate dish mix ricota cheese with green onions and egg. heat slices of eggplant on skillet with pam spray for about 4 minutes on each side (i did this to make baking time shorter). spread meat and veggie sauce on bottom layer of cassarol dish, then layer with eggplant, ricotta mixture and sprinkle with mozzerella cheese, repeat layer and cover with foil.

    I'm sorry for confusion about the vegetarian listing. I Leave out the meat completely when I do it that way.

  • I replaced the turkey with some meat substitute to make it vegitarian and upped the ingredients to organic/all natural type things (no Ragu!). It was easy to make and tasted pretty good. I would cut the eggplant into squares or something next time to make it more like layers and triple the spinach. - 3/28/13

  • Had this for dinner tonight and it was awesome! I agree, it shouldn't be listed in the vegetarian section because of the turkey. Very filling! - 1/18/11
