"Roasted eggplant strips take the place of pasta strips and feta cheese takes the place of mozarella. This is a fun and delicious twist on the Italian favorite." — ChefJorge

My husband and I loved this recipe, the problem we usually have is that I really like eggplant and he's not crazy about it. I decided to try this out since their were so many ingredients, at way the eggplant would not have to be center stage. He says it's a definite keeper, all,I changed was adding more spices to the sauce and the meat, and I omitted the ketchup. Thanks for a new eggplants recipe!
This was just okay, and way too much work for just okay.
I would make again. Although I did not use ketchup or diced tomatoes and just used my left over meat spaghetti sauce from another meal.
My husband made this for us and we loved it. You don't even miss the pasta! We had fresh spinach so he used that instead of frozen. He also added a small can of mushrooms. He left out the ketchup. This is the first time I have ever gone back for seconds on lasagna.
2013 Update: Skipped the ketchup and doubled the spinach and parmesan. It was a hit.
Eggplant instead of pasta –then adding spinach in the ricotta – what a way to eat your vegetables! This photo is the second day - microwave heated, tasted better with age. I'd heard about using eggplant instead of pasta to 'enhance' health component and shave a few calories. What a great deal eggplant turns out to be - this summer I'm growing a couple of eggplants in our garden after using eggplant on this! I did 'mostly' this recipe, it was a great hit. Reading review I passed on the ketchup. The leftovers were even better than the first day - and the second day it held together – totally. This is wonderful- so good. :)
