    ChefWhiz's Note:

    This is delicious as well as healthy. Although you can use lean ground beef in the recipe, lean ground turkey works beautifully. Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese is optional but adds to the taste. Enjoy!

      I really liked this recipe, but I made a few changes to it too. I cut the eggplant into pretty small cubes, like 1/4 inch. I soaked the cut eggplant and the outer shells in a bowl of heavily salted water to take out some of the bitterness. I also used canned mushrooms instead of fresh, I just didn't add them as early in the recipe, but they tasted great. Also, I used the paste but I added a can of tomato sauce, and garlic, to give it more of a saucy-ness. I also added a lot of salt, pepper and other italian seasonings. Then I added cheddar cheese to the top of the mixture about 5 minutes before it was done baking. I really loved the flavor of this recipe. I served it over pasta for an italian kick. It was a great way to work eggplant into a meal without all the weird mushy-ness. For an easier version, you could just peel the eggplant and cut up all of it and mix it in the same way.

      I don't know what happened; maybe the eggplant needed to cook a lot longer than it said. Also, the amount of tomato paste needs to upped. Pasta sauce might be better. Don't know if I'll try again.
