When I make this, I use store-bought sauce to save time. I grill my eggplant in my grill pan until soft. Then I follow the recipe as written. Very yummy, my DH likes spaghetti or penne on the side.

I love this recipe. However I have never,ever treated eggplant any different than any other vegetable. I just use it in the recipe without any special previous treatment...just wash, peel & slice before popping into the recipe.Saves a lot of fuss and time for me.
