Eggplant Lasagna Tower is perfect to serve when having guests over for dinner. This vegetarian dish will be sure to please and is very filling. It will seem like you have been slaving in the kitchen all day but it is really quite simple to make and tastes amazing! How many towers you make depends on how big and how many eggplants you have.
