olive oil cooking spray

2 medium eggplants, peeled and cut into ¼-inch thick lengthwise slices

1 pinch garlic salt

1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey

1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

2 cups low-fat marinara sauce

2 cups shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese


STEP 1: Heat broiler. Lightly spray 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside. Lightly spray eggplant slices with cooking oil. Place on nonstick baking sheet. Sprinkle both sides with garlic salt. Broil six inches from heat source for 3 to 6 minutes per side or until tender and browned.

STEP 2: Meanwhile, cook turkey as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165ºF as measured by a meat thermometer. Remove turkey.

STEP 3: Lightly spray skillet with cooking spray. Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, eight to 10 minutes or until there is no liquid remaining in the pan and mushrooms are starting to brown.

STEP 4: Heat oven to 350°F. Place half of the eggplant in a single layer in bottom of baking dish. Top with half the mushroom mixture, half the cooked turkey, half the seasoning, half the marinara sauce and half the cheese. Repeat layering with the remaining ingredients.

STEP 5: Cover and bake 20 minutes. Remove cover and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until hot and cheese is bubbly.

Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
