Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 28 oz low-sodium marinara sauce (such as Amy's)
  • 1 eggplant, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey breast (such as Foster Farms)
  • 8 oz grated part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F.

Spoon 1/2 cup of marinara sauce into baking dish. Place about half of the eggplant slices in the dish. Top with 1/2 ground turkey. Cover with 1 cup marinara sauce and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat the layer, finishing the casserole with the rest of the cheese.

Cover with foil. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Variations:

If using regular marinara sauce, adjust the nutrition for increased sodium.
