We had an abundance of eggplant in our garden one year, so I was happy to find this recipe, especially since it was such a hit with my family. It's not hard to make, and the best part is it's perfect for two people. -Joyce Towles, Houston, Texas

"This was way too salty to eat. Blotting the moisture didn't seem to help."

"This dish was pretty good. I also made it in a casserole, but used mozzarella cheese because that's what I had on hand. Don't make the mistake I did and forget to blot the extra moisture from the eggplant after draining - it was way too salty. Next time I might add some chopped celery to the veg mixture to give it a little more crunch."

"This was delicious and my family loved it! I ended up just making in a small casserole dish and served as a side with chicken, but could easily be a vegetarian meal."
