READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by food addict

From about.com and is described as follows: "The classic combination of eggplant, tomato, and herbs is enhanced by the addition of feta cheese to create a delicious meatless appetizer or main dish." Haven't tried it yet but sounded yummy and easy to make.

Sooo good, yummy and yes, easy to make. Halved and served with my Greek-Style Potatoes with Lemon and Thyme and a green salad, it was a perfect early-summer meal. In the interest of calories, next time I may try baking the eggplant slices (or at least drain them after frying). But the lovely taste of good olive oil is essential, so never mind. Thanks, food addict - this converted a non-eggplant lover.
