    Saw this on FoodTV's Cooking Thin show. This was easy to make and tasty. It was voted a hit in my house. Serve it with crackers or pita bread. It can be made ahead of time.

      Mouth-watering Good! I roasted the eggplant onion and a whole bulb of garlic at the same time 25 minutes was perfect.I used half the garlic which was creamy smooth. I think next time I`ll skip the cheese.The cilantro is a must! Very good.

      This is good dip. I think next time I would only put 1 or 1/2 tsp balsamic in the mix because it was a very prominant flavor and I wanted more eggplant flavor to come through. I forgot the cheese and didn't miss it at all but I bet it would be good!!! Thanks for posting!

      WOW! This was so so so so good. I can't believe how delicious this was. Unlike Rita, I adored the cheese in it. In fact before serving I sprinkled a little more on top from a nice chunk of reggiano I had on hand. I served this with homemade pita chips.
