My Eggplant Lasagna!

One week ago, I had a rare feeling. I felt I wanted to cook. By the way, I never cook except I'm alone in my house when my house assistant go to her home town. Cooking never been my hobby and I always declare I can't cook. In fact is just I never tried to cook. Sooo, a week ago, I wanted to cook but didn't know what to cook. Then the idea came up, I wanted to cook Eggplant Lasagna!

I remembered I went to a restaurant in Prawirotaman Jogjakarta named Aglioo! I tried Eggplant Parmigiana there and it was very good. I thought it would be easy to make, so I decided to imitate. But in supermarket I visited, I found Parmesan is very expensive so I just use Mozzarella. So below the list what I used in making Eggplant Lasagna.

❤ Olive oil
❤ Onion, chopped.
❤ Garlic, chopped.
❤ Tomato Paste
❤ Oregano
❤ Salt
❤ 2 Eggplant, sliced.
❤ 200 gr of Mozzarella, thinly sliced or grated.
❤ Cheddar, grated.
❤ Lasagna

This is what I did:
1. Heat the frying pan, put the olive oil, onion, garlic, and tomato paste.
2. Put small amount of oregano.
3. Slice the eggplant.
4. Prepare the glass baking dish. Stack the tomato paste layer, lasagna, eggplant, mozzarella, another layers of them, and grated mozzarella and cheddar for the top.

Before the lasagna went to the oven!
5. Bake for 45 minutes.
6. Voila!

When I stacked into layers, my mom went to kitchen and asked me, "Have you put the salt into the tomato paste?"

Then my mom put some salt to the remaining tomato paste but unfortunately I already put most of tomato sauce into the baking dish. After the lasagna done, I tasted and yes I should not forgot the salt but I think for inexperienced in cooking like me, it was not bad. I should use more of tomato paste so the top lasagna wouldn't be dry on the corner. And it would be tastier if I added more mozzarella. If I make Eggplant Lasagna again, maybe I'll add Béchamel sauce.

After I made this, I thought wow so cooking is not as difficult as I thought before. I managed to cook ginger steamed chicken and sauteed bok choi (Chinese cabbage) three days ago and it turned out to be good. Unfortunately, I didn't take good pictures of them. I'm proud of my self, hahaha... Though I still not good in cutting garlic and peeling ginger. Hmmm, what should I cook next? ^^
