Eggplant lasagna

If you're looking for a low-carb version of lasagna, then you've got to try this recipe with eggplant and mozzarella! Start by frying up an onion and then add 1 pound of ground beef. When nicely browned, add 1 large can of chopped tomatoes and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Wash the eggplants and then slice them thickly, lengthwise. Brown them in a hot pan with some olive oil. Then compose the lasagna with 1 layer of eggplant, 1 layer of meat sauce and 1 layer of fresh mozzarella cheese. Repeat until you reach the top of your baking dish, and bake for 40 minutes at 350 °F until bubbling.
