Directions for: Pasta-less Eggplant Lasagna

Ingredients

1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the onions, garlic and Italian ground round. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the ground round is cooked through (about 5 minutes or so).

2. In the meantime, baste the eggplant slices with olive oil and broil until they are brown around the edges and soft in the center (about 2-3 minutes per side). Remove from oven.

4. Layer the “lasagna” in an ovenproof dish as follows:

5. Bake for 30-40 minutes. The top will be golden and it will be bubbling around the edges. Serve with salad.
