The sauce on this was phenomenal. I think it was the bouillon (I used vegetable) that did it. My BF wanted to eat the leftovers for lunch, which is simply unprecedented! I dipped the eggplant in egg whites and coated with some panko bread crumbs. I figure this didn't affect the fat and calories too much. I also upped the tomato sauce by about 50% as per other reviewer's recommendation and added 1/2 cup low fat mozzarella. Served it with spaghetti. My only other suggestion is to cook the eggplant a little longer if you prefer. I'm going to make this again soon, to see if it will be as good as it was the first time! Thanks for a terrific recipe:D
Wow! The sauce is indeed phenomenal. The best eggplant in DH opinion. As always, I sprinkled the eggplant with salt for a half an hour before putting it into the oven but I'm not sure if it's necessary for this recipe. I doubled the sauce and added a layer of cooked veal tongues on top of the eggplant. DH, who is not a big fan of tongues, couldn't have enough. From now on it will be our way of making eggplant. Thanks, Jacqueline.
Yummy! I added 8 oz of sliced fresh mushrooms, and took the chance that it would make it a little watery. Of course it did, so I baked it a little longer to thicken it up some. Next time I'll saute the mushrooms prior to adding between the layers to avoid that. I used part skim mozzarella instead, but it didn't seem to make a difference. This did not taste dietary at all. I doubled it to serve more people, and I'm going to have the leftovers for lunch. Thanks so much!!
This was so good! I altered the recipe for my vegan diet-replaced the chicken bouillon with vegetable and used vegan parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. It was soooo good. Even my boyfriend who hates eggplant AND vegetarian food loved it.
Yummy and healthy! I'm giving this 5 stars even though I used my own leftover tomato sauce. Next time I'll make the recipe just as stated. Precooking the eggplant this way is a great idea, and the dish was very quick to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is excellent! My fiance added mushrooms to the sauce. My only recommendation is to add more tomato sauce.
This made a nice, low fat dinner for me! I used vegetable boullion cube and added a little more mozzarella cheese. Thank you!
