Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant (about 1 pound)

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided

  • 3/4 pound lean ground lamb

  • 1 cup onion, sliced

  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped

  • Rosemary to taste

  • 4 tablespoons feta cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°F. Wash eggplant and trim ends. Cut into 1-inch slices and arrange on a nonstick cookie sheet. Brush lightly with about 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Bake 10 minutes, turn, bake 10 minutes more. When cool, cut into bite-sized pieces.

Brown lamb in skillet, drain any excess fat. Put aside. Put the remaining teaspoon of olive oil in skillet and cook onions until slightly browned.
