My daughter recently bought me some vintage cookbooks. This recipe came from Betty Crocker's Dinner in a Dish, published in 1965. This is a great version of one of my favorite ways to enjoy eggplant!

This was really very delicious and a nice change of pace from typical eggplant parmigiana! I also used 1 large eggplant, which I quartered to make four sections. I found I didn't have the right size can of tomatoes, so I used approximately half of a 28-oz. can of San Marzano diced tomatoes, which worked out great. Since I had removed the flesh from the eggplant so well, the shells were really superfluous, since there was really nothing left to them but peel. I could see using the filling over pasta, too. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.
