  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Brush eggplant slices with olive oil on both sides, and place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle garlic powder over the top. Bake for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, tomatoes and spinach. Cook and stir for a few minutes until fragrant, and the tomatoes have released their juices. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  3. Place the eggplant slices in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with the spinach mixture. Spoon the cheese mixture over the spinach, and spread into a thin layer. Pour the pasta sauce over the cheese layer. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the top. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until heated through and the eggplant is easily pierced with a fork.

This recipe was wonderful. The only thing different I did was add fresh mushrooms, and extra fresh garlic as I did not have garlic powder. Since I had two eggplants I also tried the Eggplant P...

I am in love with this recipe! I did add a spicy fresh chorizo sausage to the spinach mix. I also substituted diced can tomato with green chilies for the fresh tomatoes (be sure to drain). I did...

I'd never had eggplant before when I decided to use this recipe. It was great! People who don't like veggies can add more cheesey goodness to the top. Next time, I won't cook the spinach, becaus...

This turned into a really yummy, healthy meal! Without much experience with eggplant, it was really helpful to know it's done when easily pierced with a fork.

Delicious. This is first time I have cooked eggplant. Recipe is easy to follow and to prepare. Did not use garlic due to garlic allergy. Also diabetic, so 14.8 grams carbs per servicing is gre...

This was absolutely delicious and I am not a fan of eggplant..
