I cooked this for my vegetarian neice, and she thought they are quite nice. I halfed the recipe and wasn't too sure how long I should cook the eggplants. I chopped them into large chunks and boiled in salted boiling water for about 20 minutes. But after taking them out, they are so wet that I had to try them on towels for 20 min.I used parmesan, more than the amount called for, but still felt the recipe lacked flavour and texture all together. I would love to give this another try, though. I think next time I will roast the eggplants then puree, instead of boiling them.
