This recipe takes a lot of time to do but it's worth it. The taste is amazing. I'm beginning to like eggplants. The taste of the sauce is wonderful. It's almost a lasagna without pasta. I used lean ground beef, spicy italian sausage. I didn't add the 28 ounces can tomato puree cause I didn't have any left in the pantry. So at the end, I added vegetable juice in the baking dish where there was sauce missing. I used only 1/8 cup sugar. Thanks Breezermom :) Made for 123 hit wonders
This was a truly delicious meal! I was unable to buy Italian sausage, so I made some, using regular beef sausage, mixed with sage, fennel, garlic powder, and Italian herbs. Also, i could only get 1 medium eggplant, so I had 1 layer of eggplant, and used zucchini for the other layer. This was a winner with our whole family!
