Wonderful easy crockpot recipe! I followed this recipe as stated but added extra minced garlic, crushed red peppers, garlic powder and italian seasoning when mixing it. I forgot the parsley at the end and served this over whole wheat rotini. 6 and 8 year old loved as did my husband and I. Will definitely make again! Love eggplant dishes - especially when they're easy and done in a crockpot! Thank you!
