  • Heat the oven to 180°C.
  • Cut off the ends of the eggplant, then slice lengthwise, about 3-mm thick.
  • Sprinkle the eggplant slices with sea salt on both sides and let sit for 10 minutes to draw out moisture. Pat dry with paper towels to remove excess liquid.
  • Place them in the oven for 5 minutes. You might want to add a little bit of olive oil.
  • In de meantime, make the meat sauce. In a large skillet fry the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add the minced meat, cook until brown.
  • Add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and seasoning.
  • In a different bowl, mix the ingredients for the white sauce.
  • Cook the pasta al dente. Add a little bit of oil to the water to keep the from sticking together.
  • Assemble the lasagna. In a baking dish, add a very thin layer of meat sauce. Layer 3 lasagna noodles, ⅓ of the ricotta mixture, and ⅓ of the meat sauce. Add the egg plant. Repeat the layers of the sauce. Add a final layer of the remaining noodles, meat sauce, white sauce, and extra mozzarella.
