    Irmgard's Note:

    I made this last night to serve over fusilli and my husband just scarfed it down, which is very rare for him. This make enough for two or three meals so is good for putting in the freezer.

      MMMM...great! I made this in the crockpot adding a jar of prepared pasta sauce to increase the amount, and use some mild breakfast sausage. Mashed up some of the eggplant after cooking to thicken the sauce. Sent 3/4 home with DS1, they loved it too...(and he's not an eggplant fan.) Thanks a bunch!
