We loved this! I made it with fresh garden eggplant, tomatoes and basil. This will become one of our regular summer meals. Thanks!

Super way to eat eggplant! It reminds me of a noodless lasagna. I used fresh homegrown eggplants and tomatoes for this recipe. I made this as written but just whisked in a little milk with the ricotta to make it more spreadable. I'll make this again. Thanx!
