Sounds fantastic! Can't wait to try it! Here's a tip about Eggplant: After you slice it, lay the slices on paper towels and salt it lightly. After a few minutes, blot both sides well with additional paper towels. It makes them "sweat" out the bitterness and then they taste yummy sweet !!! : ) - 4/25/09
instead of sauce I use slice of tomato. Also i add grated parmesan chees on top. I eat the whole eggplant since no one else likes eggplant. It has protein from cheese and veg..sometimes I make garlic toast to go with it. Also befor oiling eggplant, I season oil with Italian seasoning... yummy!! - 12/3/08
My husband and I both loved it! I only peeled away strips of the peeling so that the eggplant would keep its shape. I cut 2" slices, heavily sprayed each slice with cooking spray to save calories, and followed the other directions as written. Easy and tasty! Will do again many times - 3/3/09
