To start:
*Set oven to 300 Degrees
*wrap the 7 cloves of garlic in a piece of foil w/ 1tablespoon of olive oil and a dash of salt and place in oven.(this will be cook while meat sauce is being made.)
*Mince onions,or use a mandaline of you desire, to chop the onions that will go in with the meat.
*Place onions, ground chuck, and italian sausage into a medium sized pot and cook on mediun.
*While the meat is cooking, start slicing your eggplant into 1/4inch slices, this can also be done with mandaline.
*Brush olive oil and salt on both sides of each slice either heat up a pan or an indoor grill to sear the eggplant.This will only take 5 minutes.
The Sauce
*Once the meat has been fully cooked and carmalized add in your bay leaf, tomatoe sauce, tomatoe paste,canned tomatoes, flat leaf parsley, and oven roasted garlic.Use a potatoe masher to mash down the tomatoes.
*Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
While we waite......
*Grade your cheese if not already graded
*Dice roasted red peppers for the cheese layer.
*Mix masquetpone,ricotta,sun dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers together to make a filling for the 3 layer.
Lets put it all together
*Like all the other times you have made lasagna, layer as usual this sauce makes a 5 layer if you happen to be wondering put you can alwasy change it up.
*Remember:3rd layers is just the ricotta-masquet cheese layer.
