I have never eaten this at the "Olive Garden" so I don't know if this is their recipe. However, this is a nice take on eggplant parmiagiana and it tastes great. Have made a few changes hopefully you will like it. Source: Kitchen Link (Copycat Collection) at kitchenlink.com.in 05/04/2001. The remaining eggplant slices can be frozen and used in the future.

I have always loved eggplants. Took a few years to convince the family to love them. This is a good recipe, however, I've never thought about the jelly, now I know why. When people wants a sweet taste in the food, I add jus a pinch at the end of cooking, so not to be to sweet.

We loved this recipe and I will make it again, but I will probably cut down on the grape jelly because we found the sauce a bit too sweet. It's similar to The Olive Garden's Eggplant Parmigiana, but not quite as good. Worth making though if you enjoy the restaurant's version.

I'm not a big eggplant fan so I can't give this 5 stars but the sauce was soooooo yummy. My kids and their friends liked this recipe so it must be good!
