How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Cut eggplants into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place 18 slices on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat eggplant with cooking spray. Cut remaining eggplant slices into 1/2-inch cubes. Bake eggplant slices at 350° for 33 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.

  3. While eggplant bakes, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add cubed eggplant, and sauté 7 minutes or until tender and lightly browned. Remove eggplant from pan; set aside.

  4. Add lamb, onion, and garlic to pan; cook 8 minutes or until lamb is browned, stirring to crumble lamb. Drain mixture; return to pan.

  5. Stir in cinnamon and next 3 ingredients; cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cubed eggplant; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Stir in mint. Spoon sauce over roasted eggplant slices. Top evenly with cheese.
