    I like this recipe a lot. Another healthy way to eat the unsightly eggplant. I omited the milk and added a little red bell pepper and onion. - 5/7/07

    This was very good! I did increase the garlic and red pepper to give it a more spicy flare. I will definitley do this again and maybe add some red and yellow peppers along with zuchinni and summer squash. - 6/24/10

    I also make a Greek-like version of this (kind of a meatless/ potato-less mousaka): add nutmeg, spinach and finely crumbled non-fat feta cheese. No milk or pasta sauce, but diced tomatoes (fresh or canned-low sodium) and 2 Tbsp. tomato paste. A dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt on top if wanted. - 6/22/10

    Really good! I added mushrooms, used dried basil as my seedlings are not usable yet, and canned tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano. Even picky DH ate it with no complaints. He claims to hate eggplant, but bought me a plant for garden today! - 5/28/11

    yes, yogurt is excellent with this recipe instead of evaporated milk, but don't add to the pan, rather add it on the side and enjoy eating the dish with 1/2 a whole wheat pita. (I toast mine in the toaster) - mm delish! - 6/22/10

    This sounds really scrummy, but I think there must be a good alternative to evaporated milk - yoghurt, perhaps? - 3/17/07

  • I like this recipe, but I'd omit the evaporated mik and would add a touch of cinnamon to the tomato sauce. - 12/12/11

  • If you want a shortcut to eggplant and pasta, use "Eggplant Caponata", a mix of eggplant, tomatoes, olives, capers peppers all mixed together. I get mine at Trader Joe's, it's 90 calories per 1/3 cup. You can serve it on bread as an appetizer or mix it with any pasta as a main dish. Very good. - 12/12/11

  • I used fat free plain yogurt instead of milk and shredded cheddar cheese because that's what I had. It pretty darn good! - 2/16/11

  • I am looking forward to trying this tonight, I bought eggplant to make eggplant pizza's, but this sounds better. I'm going to add in some ground turkey. I have a question, when you rinse off the salt does that get rid of most of that sodium? Trying to find the answer online, so far no luck. - 2/7/11

    Excellent! I love eggplant and with tomatoes and garlic it was delish. Used yoghourt instead of milk - will consider adding zucchini next time. Definitely a keeper. - 6/23/10

  • What a great idea for a gluten-free vegetable substitute for pasta. I think some reviewers missed the point that the eggplant IS the pasta -- no pasta or other starch is needed to complete this dish. I'll make this with home made tomato sauce. - 6/22/10

    I made a few changes- added light sour cream instead of the milk and added more garlic. I used one can of diced tomatoes and covered the mixture for about 10 minutes to cook before adding the sour cream. This was amazing!! I was actually surprised about how good it was. - 6/22/10

    Made this tonight...I served it on Brown Rice instead of W.W. Pasta. Both DH and I liked it and I'll make this again. I did add a touch more garlic and some sauted Onions to the mix. Next time I'll try it with Yogert as now what do I do with the Evaporated Milk that's left over. - 6/22/10
