Another of my mom's old recipes that I loved as a teen-ager. A good meatless main dish.

This recipe is very tasty! I didn't make it exactly as written, since I had fresh tomato, garlic, onion, basil, and oregano on hand, so I used them instead of the dried/powdered spices and the tomato paste, but other than that, tried to stick with the recipe. I wasn't sure what you meant by "well seasoned" rice, so I used Red Robin seasoned salt and Italian seasoning in the rice, which gave it a nice flavor. I also drizzled with about 1 t. olive oil and sprayed with canola oil cooking spray instead of the butter on top, too. I really like the buttery eggplant taste mixed with the cheesy sauce and tomato flavors. Delicious! I'll be making this one again.
