This is so good! I love the flavors and I hope you do too! I got this off the internet (I don't remember where) and tweaked it a bit. Not only is this yummy but only 3 weight watcher points! Enjoy!

I REALLY liked this. Eggplant is such a healthy food and I'm trying to eat more of it. This is a recipe that I'll be making again and again. I just love the sauce. I didn't bake mine as long as it said in the recipe, but I broiled it at the end to get the cheese nice and bubbly. Thanks for posting!

YUMMY! We are new to eating eggplant so I am pretty careful about which recipes to try - this one was GREAT! I had one large eggplant (which I think was enough) and added probably 3 cups of mushrooms to the onion mixture (because I needed to use them up) - we loved it! And it really is only 3 points - woo hoo! Thanks for sharing!!!

I'm not an eggplant lover, but this was great! I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh and it worked fine. I used an 8x8 pan and it layered more like a lasagna than parm for me.... but we enjoyed it. There are a lot of dishes, but it's worth it!
