Place eggplant in baking dish, top with tomato slice, then spoon cheese mixture on top of each slice. Can also layer in lasagna fashion. Bake for 30-40 min until golden brown. Note that eggplant creates a good amount of water so be sure to cook until most liquid is gone.

  • I switched chili powder for cayenne pepper and cajun spice, added onion and zuchinni, italian seasoning spices and the mozarella. We had half for dinner w/ bread and will eat the other half with plain spaguethi today... YUMMI - 2/6/09

  • It is still cooking...however there is ALOT of liquid still in there and it's been in the oven for almost an hour now. I didn't notice what temp to cook at, so I guessed 375. Maybe that's too low? Help! It smells really good and I can't wait to try it!!! - 12/16/08

  • This looks good, but what can I use instead of salt? I'm watching my sodium intake. - 10/5/08

    I use very little salt, really just to help get some of the bitterness out the of the eggplant. But you can omit the salt and increase the Mrs. Dash or try a little extra italian seasoning. Any herb just adds more flavor.

  • This recipe is super easy and sooo good, especially with a little kick of Cayenne Pepper! One suggestion, make sure the slices really are 1/4 - 1/2 inch in thickness otherwise the texture is a little undercooked. Also delicious with Gruyere cheese on top. - 10/3/08

  • LOOKS REALLY GOOD--I'LL TRY IT. Oh I tried it it is wonderful!!! I leave out the oil and use Pam. I also chop up an onion and add to the cottage cheese mixture--then add 1 cup mozzarella cheese. I always intend to freeze for later but never have any left! I love it. THANKS - 9/29/08
