Wine of the Month - Recipe

January 11, 2016

 

 

Here's an amazing Wine of the Month recipe for our beloved vegetarians! 

EGGPLANT LASAGNA

 

 

Ingredients

 

1 teaspoon olive oil for brushing

2 eggs

2 tablespoons water

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 large eggplants, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch rounds

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound ground beef

48 ounces chunky tomato sauce (such as Prego(R))

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

 

Directions

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Oil 2 baking sheets and a 9x13-inch baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil.

Whisk eggs and water together in a shallow dish. Combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt, and ground black pepper in a separate shallow dish.

Dip eggplant slices into egg mixture, then press each gently into bread crumb mixture. Gently tap off any excess crumbs. Arrange slices on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake eggplant slices in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Flip eggplant and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove eggplant from the oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground beef. Season beef with salt and ground black pepper. Cook and stir until beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir tomato sauce into ground beef; bring to a simmer and set sauce aside.

Place 1/3 of the eggplant slices on bottom of the dish. Pour 1/3 of tomato sauce with ground beef on top of eggplant layer. Sprinkle 1/3 of mozzarella cheese on top of sauce layer. Repeat 2 more times, finishing with a layer of mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

 

Make it Healthier

  1. Substitute low fat ricotta cheese for the mozzarella

  2. Substitute 1 lb of sautéed mushrooms for the ground beef
