Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Drop lasagna noodles into water and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Cook until noodles are tender but still slightly firm, about 8 minutes.
  4. Drain water from the noodles and let cool.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Cook and stir garlic and eggplant chunks until eggplant is partially cooked, about 7 minutes.
  7. Pour tomato sauce into the skillet and simmer until eggplant is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  8. Combine ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper, and egg in a bowl.
  9. Mix spinach into ricotta cheese mixture.
  10. Spread a layer of tomato sauce mixture into the bottom of a 9x12-inch baking dish.
  11. Place 4 noodles on top of the sauce, overlapping if necessary.
  12. Spoon 1/3 of the remaining tomato sauce over noodles.
  13. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over the tomato sauce
  14. Repeat layers twice more, starting with noodles and following with sauce and ricotta mixture.
  15. Top the lasagna with mozzarella cheese.
  16. Bake in preheated oven until the ricotta filling is set and mozzarella cheese topping is lightly browned, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Great recipe. I left out the cottage cheese and doubled the ricotta. I just don't feel cottage cheese belongs in lasagna. If my Sicilian grandmother were still here she would have fainted from shock if I put cottage cheese in my lasagna!

Delicious. My kids tore it up. I used a bit more sauce than the recipe called for, if you don't like your lasagna dry, i would. Highly recommend.

Excellent dish. I usually don't like the vinegar flavor of Italian food, so I usually spice it up a bit with dried chili seeds and horseradish mustard. I also add a little extra garlic and green onions. But the other ingredients for this dish were excellent.
