Three-Cheese Lasagna
Ingredients
  • 2  medium eggplants (2 lb.), chopped (11 cups)
  • 2  large red onions, halved crosswise and thickly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  cup  snipped fresh sweet basil or purple basil
  • 1/4  cup  olive oil
  • 12  dried lasagna noodles
  • 8  ounces  Gruyere cheese, finely shredded (2 cups)
  • 1 15  ounce carton  ricotta cheese
  • 12  ounces  goat cheese (chevre)
  • 1  cup  whipping cream
  • 2  eggs
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 2  teaspoons  finely shredded lemon peel
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degree F. In a roasting pan combine eggplant, onion, and garlic. Add 1/2 cup of the snipped basil and the oil; toss to coat. Roast, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until vegetables are very tender, stirring once; set aside.

2. Meanwhile, cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain and set aside. For filling, in a food processor bowl* combine 1-1/2 cups of the Gruyere cheese, the ricotta cheese, goat cheese, whipping cream, eggs, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Cover and process until just combined.

3. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degree F. Spoon one-third of the eggplant mixture evenly in the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking dish or 3-quart rectangular casserole. Layer with 4 noodles and one-third of the filling. Repeat layers twice, starting with eggplant and ending with filling. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese. Cover with nonstick aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes; uncover and bake 15 to 20 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving. Sprinkle top with 1/2 cup basil and the lemon peel. Makes 12 servings.

*Note:
