I bought an eggplant for my garden this year despite never having cooked eggplant before, and this recipe was my first attempt at cooking with eggplant. I omitted the tomato since my husband doesn't like them, but might put them on half of them for myself next time. My husband and I loved this recipe, and we will definitely use it again, either on it's own, or as a base to add a sauce to or layer with.
