WONDERFUL! I used to hate eggplant but have discovered in the last few years that if you cook it with flavorful ingredients it's great! I usually don't bother salting my eggplant but did this time. I also sprinkled the slices with garlic salt just before topping and I added 2 cloves of minced garlic to the mix. It broiled about 7 minutes and was tender, firm and juicy with a flavorful topping. We ate ours with a knife and fork. If you like all of the ingredients give it a try! Don't expect it to be exactly like the bread version. I chose this for the South Beach Diet. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

Nice taste and the presentation is lovely. Personally, I prefer the texture of toasted bread to that of eggplant as the base for these traditional toppings. Perhaps there is a trick I never have learned to keeping broiled eggplant from becoming leathery. I would welcome education on this matter. I'm sorry I can't rate it more highly.
