Ingredients You'll Need

2 large unpeeled eggplant, sliced 1-inch rounds
4 large Portabella caps, grilled or sautéed, julienne cut
3 large basil leaves, broken into 2 inch pieces( or 2 tbsp dried)
1/2 cup onions, thinly sliced in rings
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Sodium-free Herb and Onion mix (Mrs. Dash)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
2 oz Swiss cheese, sliced, julienne cut
2 oz Colby Jack cheese, sliced julienne cut
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded (real refrigerated cheese)
6 to 8 large cherry tomatoes, halved


Directions

1. Spread the olive oil over a 13-inch casserole baking dish or deep rimmed baking pan.


2. Spread eggplant to cover the bottom. there will be little spaces in between… that’s ok


3. Spread the grated Parmesan cheese over the eggplant.


4. Scatter half of portabella strips over the eggplant. Spread remaining eggplant on dish. Place remaining portabella strips. Separate onion rings and scatter over top.

8. Carefully pour the water along the sides of the dish. Gently tilt the dish side to side to spread water over bottom of dish. It will evaporate thru cooking and reduce the amount of oil needed to cook eggplant.

10. Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese evenly over the dish.
