Because my recipe calls for baking the eggplant instead of frying it, it’s much healthier! The prep time is a little longer than for some recipes, but the Italian flavors and rustic elegance are well worth it. —Laci Hooten, McKinney, Texas
"As everyone who raises a garden knows, zucchini grows overnight!" declares June Formanek of Belle Plaine, Iowa. "I never like to let anything go to waste, so I try adding this hearty squash to every recipe I can. This dish has the fresh taste of summer."
No one will ever guess this creamy, hearty casserole is actually low in fat. My daughter requests this dish often, and I happily oblige. It's a good-for-you meal with broccoli and chicken.—Debbie Wheeler, Nampa, Idaho
A good friend of mine shared this delicious recipe with me. When my family gets tired of the same old spaghetti, I like to serve this dish for a change! It provides a flavorful alternative to the Italian version. It's also a great dish when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.—Mary Detweiler, Middlefield, Ohio
