Ingredients (Serves 4)
You'll need the following ingredients:
 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced thin
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1½ teaspoons dried basil
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

  • Sauté the garlic for one minute. Add the crushed tomato, basil, oregano, and salt; then cook gently over medium-low heat for ten minutes.
 
  • Spread a layer of this mixture over the onion layer.
 
  • Add a layer of eggplant and follow with a layer of tomato.
 
  • Sprinkle one-third of the mozzarella cheese over top.
 
  • Repeat layers of eggplant, tomato, and cheese until you use all ingredients. Finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
 
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
 
  • Uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until layer of cheese is light brown.
