      I have made this recipe again and so I thought I would review it. It could be a little spicier, but I never seem to write it on my notes.
      My husband is Italian and I like to make this when the eggplants are plentiful.

      This IS a great combo of flavors, I used two eggplants as I have a huge crop from my garden, and used one large onion and a couple tablespoons fresh garlic, I incresed the red pepper flakes, and used my The Best Creole Seasoning! to flavor the ground beef, I also did some amount adjustments and used penne pasta in place of rigatoni! Great recipe, thanks for sharing MG!...Kitten:)

      Fabulous combination of flavors and textures. My tomato puree was a little on the bitter side, so I added a little baking soda to balance the acids. Really a great meal, and could easily be done vegetarian.
