Delicious eggplant recipe! Like eggplant parmesan but without the breading and frying. I don't care for onions so left them out and added a slice gypsy pepper instead. This is an easy-to-make dish that we really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made this tonite, and didn't measure ingredients, but it was really good. I used two large eggplants, and probably more onion than called for. I just purchased a jar of spaghetti sauce, and not sure how many cups were in that jar. I had a bag of freshly grated parmesan and just sliced mozarella. I tore the mozarella into large pieces, and then just covered the entire top with LOTS of parmesan. I loved it. It's not eggplant parmesan, but a very good "almost".

This recipe was pretty simple to make. I think the flavor really depends on the spaghetti sauce you use. I sent my boyfriend to the store and he bought a super cheap bottle so the whole recipe tasted like that. We also only used 1 onion. I don't know how you could use more. I think with a high quality marinara this could be a really great recipe. Thanks for helping me use up my eggplant!
