We really like eggplant and would rather have it baked than fried. This can be served as a main dish or side dish. -Donna Wardlow-Keating, Omaha, Nebraska

"Very good recipe! The only thing I did differently from the original recipe was to lightly salt and pepper the tomato layer. Very tasty and low cal and carb!"

"Great recipe. Loved that it was low carb. Made it according to recipe except used low fat mozzarella, asiago instead of parm, and Italian seasoning instead of basil (what I had in the kitchen). Hubby said he would not eat unless made traditionally (breaded and fried). He really liked it!! Definitely a keeper in my recipe box."
