Slow Cooker Cheesy Eggplant Casserole

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Slow cooker Cheesy Eggplant Casserole. Where are my veggies?


1 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup reduced-fat or whole-milk 
ricotta cheese
1 cup reduced-fat or whole-milk cottage cheese
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 egg
1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves, 
plus additional basil leaves for garnish
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
3 cups all-natural jarred 
marinara sauce
1 large eggplant, trimmed and sliced 
into ¼-inch rounds


In a food processor, process cheeses, garlic, egg, ½ cup basil and pepper until combined and smooth.
Mist a 5- to 6-qt slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of marinara (about 1/3 cup) over bottom of slow cooker. Arrange one-third of eggplant slices over sauce, overlapping edges. Spread half of cheese mixture over eggplant and then spoon one-third of remaining marinara evenly over top. Repeat with another one-third of eggplant, half of cheese mixture and one-third of sauce, and finish with remaining one-third of eggplant and sauce.
Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. (TIP: If casserole is still watery, cook on high, uncovered, for an additional 10 minutes.) Garnish with additional basil.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
