I love this recipe because it's lighter than traditional lasagna and is bursting with garden fresh flavor. Even a pasta-lover like myself doesn't miss the noodles! This recipe has a lot of steps, but since it freezes well, I try to always make one or two extra to keep in the freezer for dinner another night.

I love eggplant and this traditional Sicilian dish is one of my favorites. The traditional way of making it is to fry the eggplant, but I like to roast it to keep the dish a bit lighter.
