This tastes just like the classic eggplant Parmesan layered between noodles, four cheeses and tomato sauce! Serve with a side salad and some garlic bread for a wonderful meal. Originally from a May 2001 food section in the Houston Chronicle

I love eggplant dishes! I made a few changes, as I had already started prepping my eggplant when I saw your recipe. I used fresh breadcrumbs, whole eggs, and drizzled some olive oil, before baking the eggplant as in your recipe. Then, I followed your recipe! It was delicious and reheated great in the micro. Thanks Leslie, for another great recipe. Roxygirl
