Ingredients

  • 2

    medium (15 oz each) white eggplants, stems trimmed off and halved lengthwise

  • 3

    links (8.4 oz?) sweet Italian chicken sausage, casings removed (I used Premio)

  • 1/2

    small onion, finely diced

  • 2

    cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 1/3

    cups crushed tomatoes

  • 5

    basil leaves, chopped (plus more for garnish)

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1/2

    cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

  • 4

    teaspoons grated Pecorino Romano

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Hollow out the flesh of the eggplant to create a boat using a melon baller or small knife, leaving a 1/2-inch of the skin all around to create a shell. Roughly chop the scooped out eggplant flesh. Drop the eggplant into the boiling water and cook 3 minutes (poking it with a spoon so they stay submerged). Remove with a slotted spoon and set them on paper towels on the counter. Meanwhile, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking the meat up while it cooks into smaller pieces. Add the onions and garlic and cook on a medium-low heat for about 2-3 minutes, until onions are translucent. Add 1 cup chopped eggplant and cook about 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup crushed tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in fresh basil. Pour 1/3 cup of crushed tomatoes on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish and place the eggplant boats on top. Season the eggplant with salt and divide the sausage and sauce evenly among the 4 eggplant boats. Top each with 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella cheese and 1 teaspoon each of Pecorino Romano cheese. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes until cheese is melted and eggplant is cooked through.
