      I too made this as a recipe of the month--and I am so glad I did. I increased the garlic slightly and added extra lemon juice (by accident, but I wasn't sorry) and I skipped the parmesan which seemed unnecessary. Also I grilled the eggplant and added the salt to the garlic which I made into a paste and then added to the grilled eggplant. It seems like a lot of changes, but I think I followed the spirit of the recipe and it was quite wonderful.

      Really good. Made 1/2 a batch as was had a lot of little 'meze' and didn't want too many leftovers. The instructions are right on. Didn't use the parmesan as it's not traditional to add cheese to melitzanosalata here in Greece. Good accompaniment to our bbq'd pork chop dinner.

      Truly outstanding! I made it into a spread to use with sandwiches. roasted some red pepper long with the eggplant, too. Blitz all in the Cuisinart, refrigerated to meld flavors and Voila...delicious spread on a hearty bun with salami and more of the red pepper. Made for the Mediterranean event in Cooking Photos.
