Good dish for feeding a group. Pancetta flavor was almost not there. Skipped the breadcrumbs. Used the same dish for baking the eggplant and for baking the casserole.
I thought this recipe was really good. I think it would be better with more eggplant.
We loved this recipe- a great way to use end-of-the-summer eggplant! I conserved dishes by browning, making the sauce, and baking it in my (Tramontina) braising pan. It was big enough to handle the job.
We loved this! It was worth the effort for sure. My husband ate all of the leftovers and there was none left for me.
We loved this recipe! It was a little complicated, but well worth the effort. I only used half the amount of cayenne pepper called for, and it had a nice heat. Added an additional tbsp. of fresh basil. Would make again.
Sure, it makes a lot of dishes, but it was totally worth it! We really loved it. The only change I would make is to add more eggplant (but that's just a personal preference). This is a keeper!
