Recipe by Manami

This looked too good to pass up, since I love anything with eggplant. We tried it and we made some changes and here they are. Was originally found in Cooking Light, March/95.

Excellent! I had a lot of requests for seconds and copies of the recipe. Even those who aren't huge matzah fans loved it! I ended up sauteeing the eggplant and omitting the wine and it turned out great. I also used mozarella instead of the ricotta and parmesan. Thanks!
