Notes

TIP: There are a variety of substitutions that can be made within this recipe. To start, the sausage can be any heat level your family enjoys. You can also use chorizo or hamburger.
TIP: Although egg plants were used, other low carb vegetables like spinach would work as well. Layering thin slices of zucchini would work too!
TIP: If you don't have cottage cheese or not a fan, you can replace with Ricotta cheese.
