  2. Place the eggplant slices on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 20 minutes, until tender. Make the tomato sauce as outlined here.

Add another layer of eggplant and follow with the tomato sauce and cheese. Repeat these steps until you have desired amount of layers. Make sure cheese is the final layer on top.

Chef Tips

For a richer dish, lightly brush the eggplant slices with oil before baking them.

If you are on a low fiber diet, pass the Quick Tomato Sauce through a sieve to remove the seeds and any skin.
