SO HOW'D IT GO?

just wondering, what's the shredded stuff on top of your lasagna?

that the fideos pasta (uncooked), like small short noodles. i know that pasta shouldn't bet the top layer of your lasagna, it's just that i had too much sauce on top and i was afraid that it might boil over. anyway, it looks very pretty.. XD i wonder you could use those cute flower shaped soup noodles on top too.

what a wonderful dish that i had so much fun playing around with!
* blended a can of tomatoes with some dried basil, oregano and salt. used for pasta sauce. can't tell if it's better cuz i've never had it since no vegan versions are available here.
* used those small fideos for lasagna noodles. (just try to put lasagna noodles in round casserole dish and you'll get it.. :D )
* no cheese. don't have it, don't miss it.
* baked it in microwave  ;D . 5 minutes on 70% + 10 minutes on 100% with a lid on.
and despite all the modifications it still tasted pretty much like lasagna should.

Another way to prepare eggplant is to use vegetable spray in place of olive oil,bread crumbs optional, put on cookie sheet and bake in oven set at 350 for 15-20 min until soft.They appear and taste like the fried version. Can also experiment with llightly brushing with olive oil if not concerned with fat free version.Great side dish with sauce,cut up as pasta topper,etc.

I didn't care for this at all. I guess I need more instructions. I didn't know how much salt to use, how thick to cut the eggplant, or how long to cook. I didn't burn it, it just tasted very greasy and salty to me.

I made this last night. It was very good. I used panko crumbs and coated the eggplant the way that janeyboo suggested. It gave the lasagna a really great (and much less oily) texture. Thanks!

We had a hard time getting the bread crumbs to stick, but I wanted to use as little oil as possible.

Hi Daisy, I'm a fiend for fried eggplant and the only way that works for me is this method: dip the eggplant slices in soy milk, then flour, then soy milk again, and THEN the bread crumbs. It works like a DREAM, my stepfather couldnt tell a difference between this and the regular eggwash method :) Plus it is much healthier!

Thank you for the tip, janeyboo.  We will certainly try it the next time.

My husband helped me make this today.  It had a wonderful taste.  We did not peel the eggplant (some recipes say to peel).  We found the olive oil soaked right into the slices of eggplant like a sponge.  We had a hard time getting the bread crumbs to stick, but I wanted to use as little oil as possible.  We added chunks of fresh mushrooms and used spaghetti sauce.  I like the no-boil lasagna noodles because they are thinner and don't slide around when removing a serving from the dish.  Yummm!
