Eggplant Parmesan

Frank's Physical Therapist gave him an eggplant this morning, so I got together some ingredients for a casserole.

Fried the eggplant slices.

Assembled sauce, eggplant, homemade ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese.

Served with steak and rice, and cabbage, green beans and squash medley.

Making Ricotta Cheese

I have been wanting to try making cheese so started with a simple ricotta. Measuring milk.

Adding fresh lemon juice.

Heat to 190 degrees.

Straining out whey.

About 2 cups of finished cheese.
