What a fabulous way to dress up eggplant! Piled high with herbs, cheese and fresh tomatoes, this fail-proof, grilled side nicely complements a variety of main dishes. —Theresa LaSalle, Midlothian, Virginia

    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 decided to girll these up for lunch today. They were fast and easy to prepare and I thought they turned out exellent! My husband had to have something a little more substantial along with them, but i felt as though they were perfect for a hot/sticky summer day!
