Sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the crushed tomato, basil, oregano, and salt, and cook gently over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
Spread a layer of this mixture over the onion layer.
Add a layer of eggplant and follow with a layer of tomato.
Sprinkle 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over top.
Repeat layers of eggplant, tomato, and cheese until you use all ingredients. Finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes, or until layer of cheese is light brown.
