I had about 1.5 pounds of small, Italian eggplants, which I peeled and salted before using. After adding a ton more Italian seasoning to the mixture, I took Chef #182980's suggestion and filled a dozen large shells and baked them smothered in sauce. I also used 13oz of firm silken style tofu which mixed very well with the eggs. We're liking the end results very much and I will make this again.

I found this to be a very easy dish to make abeit a bit bland. I believe I'm going to save the ingredients and stuff them in a manicotti shell and smother in spaghetti sauce. I had to add another can of water as 1/4 cup wasn't enough to bring this mixture to a boil. I also substituted the egg with an applesauce-tapioca mixture as I'm vegan. I used rice parmesan too.
