I followed the recipe with one exception: I used 12 oz chopped mushrooms instead of ground beef. The vegetarian dish was absolutely delicious and I will add this to my rotation. Highly recommended!
I love this recipe; have made it twice. I sliced the eggplant in 12 slices and had enough for 2 layers, which was fine because the dish I used isn't very deep. I used 6 slices per layer. I watched a video where the cook cut the eggplant lengthwise and laid 3 slices per layer.
Finally, I don't see how many calories per serving.
Needed 2 eggplants and still only did 2 layers: next time I'll slice thinner. May add spinach and mushroom, too. Served with extra sauce on the side. The guys loved it - two helpings each - and so did I!
Excellent flavor, I cute my eggplant very thin and it cooked perfectly followed the directions perfectly except I used 28oz. of Marinara instead of 24oz. flavor depends on what Marinara sauce you use unless you make your own, I use either Mezzeta or Rao's both very tasty.
I made it to the letter but the eggplant never really cooked, in fact it was really tough, had to throw it away.
Delicious !!! I added small pieces of zucchini and replaced the green bell pepper with the orange one I had. Added a little extra garlic too. Really turned out fantastic; thank you ! (it even looked gorgeous )
