      This was a great, delicious, restaurant-quality dish. My husband loved it and is not a big eggplant fan. He said to definitely keep this recipe and make it again... I will! As with some other eggplant parmesan recipes, I took some reviewers suggestion to peel the eggplant as well as salt the slices and put them in a colander to "sweat" out the bitter juices for 20 minutes then rinse them off. I cubed it after that. I may try it another time without doing that to see if it makes a difference. I only had a little fresh basil and used mainly dry basil. I used organic pasta (Muir Glen, Bolognese variety... I'm not even sure where I bought it) and it was perfect (I think Ragu or Prego would work fine too). The crushed red pepper gives it just the right amount of bite. Mmmmm! Thanks Vino Girl

      This is a fantastic recipe. I salted the eggplant slices and let them sit for an hour before rinsing, cubing and squeezing the extra water out. I also added some red wine to the sauce, left out the basil (didn't have any) and tossed in some fresh mozzarella before serving. This is definitely going into regular rotation at our house! Thanks for posting it.

      Pretty good, extra points for being easy. I think the way this turns out depends A LOT on the jar of sauce that you use, so I suggest using something high end and fancy. It's a nice weeknight meal that I can whip together quick, so we'll be eating again. Thanks for posting!
