Ingredients

  • 24 ounces marinara sauce jar, sugar-free
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion medium, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 cups spinach chopped
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese low-fat
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese low-fat
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese low-fat
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon oregano fresh, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon basil fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 eggplants large, sliced 1/4 inch thick lengthwise (like a lasagna noodle)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a 9X13 inch casserole dish with nonstick spray. Spread 1 cup of the marinara sauce on the bottom of the dish.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add onion, mushroom, and salt. Saute until onions are soft and begin to brown. Mushrooms will begin to release water—continue to cook until the water is evaporated. Add the garlic and spinach, cook until wilted. Remove from heat and cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella, cottage cheese, egg, oregano, basil, and pepper. Combine well.
  • In the casserole dish, arrange a single layer of eggplant on top of the sauce. Top with 1/4 cup of the cheese mix followed but 1/4 cup of the cooked vegetables. Repeat until all ingredients have been used; ending with a layer of eggplant on top. Pour remaining marinara on top and spread evenly, Finally, top with remaining mozzarella and parmesan.
  • Cover with foil, lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake 20 minutes until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook an additional 10 minutes until cheese is lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 minutes before serving. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
