    If you'll notice, this is one of the few recipes that nobody substituted this for that. Everyone who loved it stuck to the original recipe which is wonderful. It's a great dish without any odd ingredients that someone may not like. Thanks for this recipe! - 2/27/10

    This is a great recipe. Even my picky children ate this. I will be making it again, however under my husband's suggestion I'm going to substitute some cottage cheese for some of the parmesan. He seems to think that will make it into lasagna. - 8/18/07

    Great dish this way! Also try easy mousaka-like version: omit Italian seasoning, add cinnamon and nutmeg; mix 1 c. non-fat Greek yogurt and 1 egg for bechamel-like sauce, spread over top of dish; then bake as above. (You can also add a layer of sliced potatoes if desired.) - 11/28/10

    I love eggplant, but could not find a recipe to make at home that I really liked. I made this last night for dinner and took the leftovers with me to work.

    We loved it! I think I'll make two next time so I can freeze one to have on hand. I omitted the 1/4 tsp of salt because I couldn't find no-salt tomato sauce. If I can find the no-salt sauce I would still omit the 1/4 tsp of salt. I don't need that much sodium. - 3/8/10
