    FlemishMinx's Note:

    I found this recipe on the internet somewhere, but have tweaked it a bit. Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables, but I haven't found all that many recipes where it is allowed to take center stage; it is usually buried under so many other ingredients and flavors. This recipe is also a nice way to use up left-over pesto. Preparation time is mainly standing time for the eggplant as it drains its bitter juices.

      I have made all kinds of variations of this recipe, and they all turn out great. I have used pesto alone, tomato sauce alone, and both. I have layered the eggplant with tomatoes and zucchini, and put parmesan or feta in the stacks before topping with tomato sauce and parmesan. I serve this atop orzo pasta as a beautiful and filling vegetarian meal. Thanks for the great idea!

      This is a great way to "change up" the way I normally serve eggplant -- delicious! I used Classico brand pesto sauce, and the only thing I added was a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts to each layer for a bit of crunch. I baked everything at 400 degrees for a half hour. The eggplant was tender and the flavors were incredible. This will be a regular in my household, as it works beautifully for a main dish or a side dish.
