I am biased because I love ANYTHING Caprese salad ish. This is really good. Healthy and incorporates all fresh ingredients. WILL make again. I ran out of propane so I cooked in a frying pan. Skeptical that the eggplant wouldn't be cooked enough, I sliced the eggplant and baked at 450 for 8 minutes and then followed the recipe but in the frying pan. Need to use a fork and knife to eat the way I made it but who cares, it's so good!
