Divide the ground meat into the same number of parts as you have slices of eggplant and tomato. Shape the meat into patties the same size as the eggplant.
Place a slice of eggplant on one end of a 9 x 13 pan. Against the eggplant place a meat patty, then a slice of tomato, then another piece of eggplant. Continue this until the dish is full.
This makes two rows with any extra pieces tucked into the unfilled areas.
Mix the tomato sauce, tomato paste and water together until smooth. Pour over the top of the casserole. Chop the bell pepper and sprinkle it and the remaining parsley over the top.
Bake at 350 for 1.5 hours. Baste occasionally with the pan juices.
