    WONDERFUL! Our first try of eggplant, and so easy to make! You will surely need more than one portion, though. - 8/24/09

    This was great! So flavorful & hearty my husband didn't even comment about there being no meat on his plate! I alternated the eggplant & mushrooms evenly and my one eggplant made 4, foot long rosemary skewers. We each had 1 served with a side salad and w/wheat fettucini tossed in a light puttanesca - 1/31/09

    This was very nice. I thought the amount would make an elegant starter, I would need a little more for a dinner. - 8/10/08
