Reviews for Grilled Italian Eggplant Slices
"Very good. I would give this 4 1/2 stars. Great vegetarian main dish. I served it with a simple basil/parsley angel hair pasta side dish and some grilled garlic bread."
"Prepared this recipe as directed, using fresh garden tomatoes. The only change was to add more garlic. Excellent flavor and very satisfying. I will definitely make this again."
"We tried it both with and without the skin on the eggplant but either way we just did not like it."
"I didn't have fresh oregano and used dried. It was very tasty."
"I absolutely would make this recipe again-so very yummy and quick too!"
