      This is a superb dish, and not too hard to make. I used roma tomatoes, cut in 1/4's, but everything else was per recipe. One thing of note - I made this a day ahead, due to time constraints, but sampled it right after completion. Then, the next day it was served. It was better the day after than when first made, as it seasoned. I'd recommend this dish/recipe to everyone, as the eggplant is not overpowering.

      This was great! I had an eggplant and tomatoes from the CSA that needed to be used, and this was a divine way to use them. Nice and spicy with an excellent flavor. I served it with green beans cooked with tomatoes (we had a LOT of tomatoes!) and basil, and a loaf of homemade bread. We substituted macaroni for the spaghetti. This recipe made quite a lot, and we are looking forward to the leftovers.
