MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2012

I highly recommend this recipe as far as preparing & cooking the eggplant in the oven - so much easier & healthier than breading & frying in pan on stovetop, soaking up a lot of olive oil, getting a soggy overcooked eggplant. This is awesome & next time, I will use the sauce recipe too as I am sure it must be just as good!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2012

Made this recipe tonight. My mother, who is very critical of eggplant, went on and on about it. It was wonderful not to do the whole thing with the salt to release the liquid from the eggplant. Awesome recipe will be making again next week!!
