EGGPLANT AND GROUND BEEF LASAGNA
I couldn't decide if I wanted lasagna or moussaka the other night; this came out as a yummy combo of the two! Spinach lasagna noodles work well in this if you can get them. Also, try ground lamb in place of the beef for another variation.

LOW-CARB EGGPLANT LASAGNA RECIPE BY TASTY

Provided by Crystal Hatch
Yield 12 servings
Number Of Ingredients 12
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Cut off the ends of the eggplant, then slice lengthwise about ⅛-inch (3-mm) thick.
- Sprinkle the eggplant slices with sea salt on both sides and let sit for 10 minutes to draw out moisture. Pat dry with paper towels to remove excess liquid.
- Lightly grease a griddle pan with olive oil and heat over medium heat. Grill the eggplant slices for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until grill marks are visible. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-low heat, then add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for about 3 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant but not browned. Add the crushed tomatoes and 1 teaspoon of salt, stirring well to incorporate the garlic and red pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, reducing the heat if the sauce begins to bubble too much. Add the basil and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat the egg, then add the ricotta, 1½ cups (150 g) of mozzarella, ¾ cup (80 g) of Parmesan, and the Italian seasoning. Mix well to combine.
- Assemble the lasagna. In a 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) baking dish, add enough sauce to cover the bottom of the dish and spread in an even layer. Add a layer of eggplant slices, covering the bottom of the dish completely. It's okay if the eggplant slices overlap slightly. Add a layer of the ricotta mixture and spread in a thin, even layer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, finishing with a layer of sauce. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan on top.
- Bake for 45 minutes, until cheese is fully melted.
- Turn the broiler on high and broil for 5 minutes, or until the cheese on top is browned and bubbly.
- Remove the lasagna from the oven and let rest for 15-20 minutes before serving to give the lasagna time to set.
- Serve garnished with fresh basil.

LAMB, FETA AND EGGPLANT (AUBERGINE) LASAGNA
This is well worth the effort to make, it's a fabulous dish! to save time the lamb sauce and the white sauce can me made up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated. The best canned tomatoes and sauce will make a difference to the meat sauce, so try and purchase a good quality product for this recipe and of coarse all recipes! If you are not a feta lover then substitute mozzarella cheese for the feta. The recipe states 12 lasagna noodles, I usually cook a couple more just in case a couple tear while boiling.

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay the butterflied leg of lamb flat on a work surface, fat side down. Combine the bread crumbs, currants, pine nuts, parsley, garlic, feta cheese, olives, rosemary, olive oil, and lemon juice in a bowl and blend well to make a coarse stuffing for the lamb. Spread the stuffing evenly along the center of the inside of the leg of lamb. Fold the lamb towards the center, one side and then the other, to enclose the stuffing and form a roll. Pin the roll closed with toothpicks or skewers, or tie the roll in several places with butcher's twine so that it does not open during cooking.
- Season the outside of the lamb with salt and pepper and place, seam-side-down, in a roasting pan. Place in the oven and roast for 45 minutes, then add the baby eggplants to the roasting pan with the lamb. Continue roasting the lamb and eggplant for another 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare.
