Pasta and eggplants are two of my favorites so I couldn't wait to try this. We really enjoyed it, especially my husband -- the chicken, cheese, pasta and eggplant really hit the spot. He devoured 2 huge servings. I peeled the eggplant to give it a softer texture, and I bought fresh mozzarella as called for -- it's the white kind that comes in a ball shape in the dairy. It didn't melt too well, so next time I'm going to buy a chunk of "regular" mozzarella and grate it. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
