Getting our Eggplant on!

I saw some great eggplant at the store the other day and wanted to make it with the chicken I had marinated for dinner.  I knew I needed a clever way to prepare it so ALL the boys in the house would at least try it before giving me that face!  Cole even turned to me after eating a few bites this is really good mom ... yup score for mom!  I went on a Google search and found on Food.com a  Recipe for a Easy Cheesy Eggplant Casserole and ran with it.

1 cup spaghetti sauce Barilla 
3/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese 
3/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese 
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (grated) 
3/4 lb eggplant (slices 1/2-inch thick)

Grill eggplant on George Foreman Grill for about 5-10 minutes until soft. Spray 8x8 baking pan with nonstick spray. Put eggplant on bottom of pan. Spread spaghetti sauce over eggplant. Mix cottage cheese and mozzarella, and spread it over sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes and serve hot. 2 Serving Size : 4
Alexis Notes:  I used my inside grill to grill the eggplant.  I also doubled the recipe in hopes that everyone would eat more :).  I used a low fat marinara sauce I love.  It is thicker and not so runny like regular spaghetti sauce.

A yummy way to get your family to eat Eggplant.


  1. I LOVE eggplant but I could never make it so that my kids would eat it too. maybe this recipe? fingers crossed!

  2. We love eggplant around these parts which is good since the garden is producing so much of it

  3. I can't do eggplant. When I was around 11 I was at a super expensive restaurant with my aunt and uncle in Maryland. I ordered a veggie lasagna. Bit into this hard thing which I was soon to be told was eggplant. Have tried numerous times since and can't get a liking for it. ALthough cheesy eggplant sounds good lol

  4. It looks good, but I've never tried eggplant and I'm scared of it!

  5. I have never before tasted eggplant. this recipe sounds delicious though.

  6. Adding this to my healthy recipe list! Definitely want to try!

  7. This sounds delicious. I have never cooked with eggplant. The ingredients sounds wonderful!
