      This was delicious. I made it for a family get together and most everyone really enjoyed it. (those that like vegetables!!) It went really well with grilled pork loin and chicken. I didn't use the cloves, though. I liked the flavor without them. I, too, sprinkled parmesan on top and left off the bread crumbs. I definitely will make this again.

      I can't believe how wonderful this casserole is! Since I had a bunch of veg in my fridge that would go bad if I didn't do something with it, I scoured for a decent recipe. I hit on this one and made only a couple of substitutions. I only had red bell pepper (not green) and used Italian seasoning and allspice rather than the herbs and cloves. There is a LOT of prep work (which I find rather Zen) . But, as I was layering, I wondered how the casserole would taste with a bit of Chevre cheese dotted on a layer of the eggplant. OMG... did this EVER work out great!!! I will rave about this dish forever, I think. :) Thank you SO much, Leslie! Fantastic meal! (Attaching a photo of my version.)

      This was great! I sort of incorporated this recipe with #100796 for Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna, I'll publish soon! I used a mandolin slicer (btw...a must have in the kitchen!) to cut the eggplant into thick julienne slices. I don't like big chunks of eggplant and instead of cloves I used graded nutmeg, personal preference. I skipped the bread crumbs and added no boil lasagna noodles. I sauteed the veggies and herbs first, layered everything and cooked it in my huge slow cooker. I added some cooked ground meat for DH so it wasn't totally veggie...he said it didn't need it! This was Delicious!! I love how the Parmesan cheese turned out texture wise like Ricotta cheese from #100796...awesome! Thanks for sharing this...I now have a wonderful way to eat eggplant without frying it!
