Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes more.
  4. Assemble lasagna by spreading 3/4 cup meat mixture over bottom of dish. Place 3 eggplant slices over meat mixture, top with 3/4 cup meat mixture, half of ricotta cheese mixture and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers ending with a layer of eggplant slices topped with meat mixture and remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
