Excellent, love this sandwich! Smoked mozzarella is not necessary, but makes a big difference!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 12, 2009

Great! My husband thought it was a very tasty and much healthier alternative to a typical eggplant parm sub. I cooked the eggplant and mushrooms on the indoor grill and placed the whole wrapped sandwich in the oven to heat through.
