    TheDancingCook's Note:

    I am on a low carb diet (South Beach) and I've found this recipe to be best in satisfying my craving of pasta with red sauce or pizza....god, I miss those days! But this is just as good and healthy too; a good dish for a vegetarian that may also be watching their carb intake. Serve this as a main dish (serves 3) or as a side dish (serves 6).

      I *must* start out by saying that I've always LOATHED eggplant. Flat out refused to eat it as a child and never cared for it since. But now that I'm on a no carb/very low carb diet...I thought I'd give this a go.

      It is hands down one of the best things I've tasted yet in the two weeks I've been trying no carb recipes.

      I used my own homemade sauce that doesn't have any sugar anyway (feel free to message me for the recipe!)and here's the part I tweaked: after reading all the comments (and being pressed for time tonight!) I took out my largest skillet and cooked the cut eggplant slices on either side, NO OIL OR BUTTER, until they were just soft. I'd say about 2 mins per side? followed the rest of the instructions and put it in a 350* oven for 20mins covered and 10 mins uncovered at the end. PERFECTION!

      This was great! I used this as a "base" idea for Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna, I'll publish soon! I used a mandolin slicer (btw...a must have in the kitchen!) to cut the eggplant into thick julienne slices. I don't like big chunks of eggplant, personal preference. I also incorporated the recipe, Eggplant Casserole (#227375), skipped the bread crumbs (in #227375) and used no boil lasagna noodles. I sauteed the veggies and herbs first, layered everything and cooked it in my huge slow cooker. I added some cooked ground meat for DH so it wasn't totally veggie...he said it didn't need it! I know not that low carb but Delicious!! I love how the Parmesan cheese turned out texture wise like Ricotta cheese...awesome! Thanks for sharing this...I now have a wonderful way to eat eggplant without frying it!

      Made this last night and it was excellant! Precooked the eggplant slices on the grill, 5 min per side. I did find a really good sauce to use with no added sugar and low sodium (360/half cup). Also used part skim mozzarella. Added pepperoni to half for my husband. Smelled incredible! Will definately be making again.
