This is a great combination of eggplant parmesan and lasagna. It is low calorie, low fat and high fiber, and it freezes perfectly. You can keep the Bolognese Sauce in the freezer for use in this as well as other Italian dishes. It is truly a terrific way to have two favorite dishes. The microwaving of the eggplant avoids either the frying or the baking and makes short time of this. The sauce may seem a bit complex but is easy to always have on hand and is delicious
