Top with another layer of eggplant, remaining ricotta cheese mixture, sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes or until casserole is cooked and bubbly. Remove foil and bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese is golden brown.

Notes

Any size eggplant can be used but I like medium eggplant with thin skin because I leave the skin on when cooking. It can be removed if you prefer it that way.

Enjoy !!!
