Default Simple Eggplant Casserole - Phase I

This recipe serves two generously and freezes very well. I make it in small glass casseroles and bake from frozen at 350 for 50 minutes uncovered. I never make just one casserole so double everything and enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 medium eggplant - a bit over a pound
cooking spray
cup of chopped onions
cup of chopped mushrooms or other veggie - peppers? Zucchini?
8 ounces of Hunts Tomato Sauce or other no-sugar added brand
4 ounces of low fat cheddar cheese, grated
garlic powder is optional
Italian seasonig is optional

Method:
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Spray a baking pan with cooking spray. I sometimes cover with foil for ease of cleanup.
Wash the eggplant and score it with a fork from stem end to blossom end. This makes it easier to digest.
Slice the eggplant into rounds and place on baking sheet.
Bake 10-15 minutes until soft and browned one one side.
Reduce oven heat to 350F,
Spray small casserole (8"x8" works fine) with cooking spray.
Put a third of the sauce and half the veggies in the bottom of the dish.
Arrange half the eggplant slices on top.
Add another third of the sauce and the rest of the veggies.
Sprinkle with half the cheese.
Repeat eggplant, sauce and cheese layering.
Bake at 350F for a half hour.
Serves two.

this sounds great and I cant wait to try it! I'm just wondering can you store them in plastic containers and microwave (for lunch if you're at work) instead of baking and if so, for how long?

I would think they would not cook properly in a microwave. Best cook the dish in the oven and transfer to microwave for lunchtime reheating.
