  • Summary

    Our take on this classic Greek casserole uses a mixture of ricotta and feta cheeses instead of the conventional white sauce, which is made from butter, flour, and milk.

    Ingredients

    • Butter, for baking dish
    • 1 large eggplant (2 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
    • 7 tablespoons olive oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2 onions, chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 pound ground beef or lamb
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, drained
    • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
    • 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 cup (9 ounces) ricotta cheese, room temperature
