      Based on the other reviews I made a few changes. I made my homemade tomato sauce with added zucchini and mushrooms to replace the 8 oz. of tomato sauce. This dish was not dry at all! I also omitted the parmesan cheese. I sprinkled just a little of the bread crumbs over the casserole and then added shredded mozzarella cheese on top to make it into a baked pasta dish. Next time I will leave out the bread crumbs, pine nuts, and parmesan. I felt like the pine nuts had an overpowering taste. Great flavor! Oh, and for 6 cups of eggplant you only need 1 large eggplant. I bought way too much cause I wasn't sure. Thanks for posting this recipe. :)

      This was a bit dry and lacked flavor, although it did better the next day as leftovers than it did the first night. It looks like it will be bursting with flavor, but then it is a bit disappointing. Thanks!

      A good, filling meal. Mine came out a bit dry so I think I will add more tomato sauce next time along with some oregano, salt & pepper.
