I just had to try this recipe because I love eggplant. I'm glad I did because we all loved it! The layers allowed us to have a little different taste treat with every forkful. Sometimes we tasted more of the stuffing; sometimes more of the eggplant, etc. It's an outstanding recipe. And my son said he loved the big mushrooms -- which were really the eggplant. Aha, he tried something new without even knowing it. Also, I used two cans of soup and twice the milk because I wanted to be sure it would be creamy, but I should have made it as written. It was a little too creamy, so next time I'm making it exactly as Caroline wrote it.
