What's for dinner?
1 medium eggplant
1/2 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 yellow onion, roughly diced
4 slices reduced fat mozzarella
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Slice the eggplant into 1/4 inch rounds. With spray oil, lightly spray a 9X9 inch baking dish & spread the eggplant out. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until tender.
In a medium sauce pan, heat a little spray oil over medium heat. Saute onion with a pinch of salt until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add about 1 teaspoon of garlic and 1 teaspoon oregano & sauce until fragrant. Add tomatoes & simmer the red sauce until ready to assemble the dish.
When the eggplant is tender, remove them from the baking dish. Starting with a little red sauce, layer the eggplant, ground turkey, sauce, and mozzarella slices in the dish. End with a little more red sauce & top with Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees until the sauce is bubbling, about 20-25 minutes. Let stand for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
