This dish was tasty but I added extra onion,peppers,tomatoes and seaonings. Next time I would add garlic, zuchinni and parmean cheese to the meat mixture. I served the casserole over some plain rice.

A terrific eggplant casserole! I made this without meat, just using the eggplant in place of the protein and was a wonderfully warm to the soul casserole. I used my own tomato and basil and thyme from the garden. Put a 2 percent cheddar cheese and baked it easily in the oven. Quick and the taste fabulous! Enjoyed this a lot and will use again. Thank you, lena! Made for PAC 2008.
