I'm actually very surprised at how well this turned out since I've never had a dish with eggplant that I liked. It was easy to make and was a hit with the whole family. My one year old had seconds, and my 3 year old even ate it, even though he doesn't really like it when foods are mixed together. Thanks for a nice recipe!

I loved this. I'm staying away from carbs so I left out the rice. I used fresh spinach and canned artichoke hearts instead of eggplant, and used low fat mozzerella. I kept everything else the same. It was wonderful. My whole family loved it. This is a keeper!
