    Very good! Love this recipe! I forgot the red wine, but added cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, oregano, Italian herbs, and basil. I roasted the eggplant slices for 10 minutes before hand and baked 30 minutes covered, 30 minutes uncovered. - 2/2/09

    This is a very good recipe. It smelled so good while cooking. Like others, I added more spices to the meat (nutmeg, cinnamon and oregano) and baked it for a longer time. I cooked it at 375, covered for 30 min and then uncovered for the same. I also used WAY less flour in making the bechamel. - 12/17/08

    I AM going to make this again -- tonight for a small party. I will add some more spices. Only suggestions is to use much less flour. There is no need for 1/2 cup; probably 2 or 3 Tbsp is enough. - 5/29/09

    O.K. this was absolutly delicious! I reduced the flour to 2 TBSP, and took advice of another recipe rating and started oven @ 375 with foil, for 30 min then uncovered at 350 for another 30 min or so...BUT I ADDED GREEK OLIVE PASTE TO THE TOPPING, AND DOLLIPED IT ON.... A FEW TBSP!!! OH MY GOD A MUST - 3/27/08

    I'm a chef
    the good proportion of flour for a bechamel
    is 60 grams of flour for 1 L of milk !
    so 1/2 cup is WAYYYYS too much for 1 cup of milk
    you'll end up doing crepes hehehe
    hope this is helpful !
