    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
