Very good recipe! The only thing I did differently from the original recipe was to lightly salt and pepper the tomato layer. Very tasty and low cal and carb!

Great recipe. Loved that it was low carb. Made it according to recipe except used low fat mozzarella, asiago instead of parm, and Italian seasoning instead of basil (what I had in the kitchen). Hubby said he would not eat unless made traditionally (breaded and fried). He really liked it!! Definitely a keeper in my recipe box.

Delicious. We plan on making this several more times this summer with eggplant, tomatoes, and fresh basil from the farmers' market. Yum!!

We found this recipe very bland. Would add marinara sauce next time and maybe some oregano with the basil. Liked the fact that it's baked though so may give it another try.

Exceptionally good recipe. Not the greasy egg dipped Eggplant Parmesan from the past. It's just perfect, especially if you can afford to indulge in fresh mozarella (I got it for less than half price today!). I made this in 2008 for a friend who loves Eggplant Parmesan and fatty foods, and he dubbed this the best ever. :) The fresher ingredients, the better.

This is perfect. Next time I'll have to make some meat to go with it for my meat loving husband. The kids and I loved it though and my husband ate it.

My Husband loved this! Now, I did tweek it a bit.....I put my homemade sauce on it instead of just the tomatoes, and layered it with mozzarella and parm, like the traditional way. Roasting the eggplant was wonderful....thank you so much for this recipe! It will be a staple in my family.
