Great eggplant recipe

Top Review by SAHMchef

My DH, a very picky eater, LOVED this recipe! I left out the mint and green peppers, and used 1/2 tea dried basil instead of fresh. I also used 3 cloves garlic. It has an intense "lamb" smell, and if you aren't a fan of lamb and eggplant, skip this one.
