MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2009

My husband loved this recipe. I made it at the lake in my electric skillet. I used my own garden fresh tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce. I simply diced them up to equal about the same amount. I included the juice from the diced tomatoes as well. I also added two cloves of minced garlic, once I added garlic powder instead. I have used both sliced mozzarella cheese and shredded mozzarella cheese either one works well. I shared some with a neighboring camper, and they loved it, asking for the recipe. The fresh tomatoes and garlic really add to the dish. I think you could use canned diced tomatoes as well. A dish we will use over and over to use up garden fresh eggplant and tomatoes.
