  • Can't wait to try this one for a pot luck at work. We were fortunate enough to be able to have a garden at work and we have the eggplant ready to go now. - 8/11/09

  • I made this (sort of!). I didn't want to use the cheese for cholesterol and calorie reasons, so I put in asparagus in in the beginning with the eggplant. I used white wine instead of the red wine vinegar because that's what I had. However, it is very good and I am enjoying it. Thanks! - 1/28/08

  • It was very good although the kids did not like the sundried tomatoes. The store I went to did not have any eggplant so i used zuccini which was very good in it. I only used 1/2 the olive oil and 1/2 the cheese and both were plenty. I will definitely make it again. - 6/10/07
