Notes

  • You can salt eggplant slices on both sides and arrange in a colander in the sink to remove excess water/bitterness for 15 minutes. Salting eggplant also helps it to cook faster. But this is optional. I’ve cooked eggplant lasagna many times without salting them and they are still delicious.
