I got this recipe from a South Beach Diet chatgroup in 2004 and it's been a family favorite ever since.

Easy Eggplant Casserole

1 cup spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup cottage cheese
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 lb eggplant sliced 1/2 thin

*Grill eggplant on a Foreman grill for 5 - 10 minutes (until soft).
*Spray 8X8 baking dish with non stick spray.
*Spread half eggplant slices over bottom.
*Spread half the sauce over the eggplant.
*Mix cheeses and spread over the sauce.
*Layer remaining eggplant slices and top with the rest of the sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.
Let sit for 10-15 mins before cutting.

* I have a hard time finding small enough eggplants so I always end up using more cottage cheese and nearly a whole jar of NSA spaghetti sauce, and baking it for 45 minutes.
