This is a good recipe that I made a few adjustments to for my own taste. First, I left out the spinach for my family and I added a little salt with the other seasonings. The directions don't say what to do with the onions and diced tomatoes so I added them to the cup of tomato sauce to top the eggplant. I added a little brown sugar to sweeten and remove the acid of the tomatoes. I also salted and drained the eggplant for 30 minutes before putting it in the oven - just what I've always personally done with eggplant. My family are cheese lovers so I also added mozzarella on top of the sauce before baking. Just adjustments to suit our tastes.

Awesome eggplant dish! Fun to make and fun to let kids help to make. I used fresh basil and fresh garlic in place of dried/powder. I also had fresh tomatoes that I used in place of canned. I sprinkled shaved parmesan cheese over the top of the sauced-topped eggplant rolls before baking. This was fabulous. Thanx for sharing the recipe!

Really nice dish. I discovered halfway through the cooking process that we had no more mozzarella so I left it out, but it was still fabulous. Thanks for posting!
