This is a pretty good recipe and using eggplant in this dish is a good idea. This dish has lots of room for you to improvise and create your own jambalaya.

An old family recipe from St. John Lutheran Church member, Lillie Kauitzsch, Bartlett, Texas. A much better taste than store bought. I also remember my great-grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Oklahoma, many moons ago. Preparations time is an estimate.
This is a classic favorite of all of the Luby's Cafeteria customers. From the Luby's 50th Anniversary Recipe Collection Cookbook. The taste of this M&C might be a little bland, but you can always kick it up.
