wow, this is a crazy great recipe, it's the kind i want to lock up in the safe, really amazing. i sprayed on the olive oil with my misto and that worked great, used a seasoned Mediterranean salt blend and i used the small japanese eggplant. next time i an envisioning sprinkling with feta cheese and perhaps a sprinkle of balsamic. fans out beautifully as in the picture and would make quite the presentation.
