Made for Spring 2010 PAC Easy and very good. I'm not sure why I didn't think it was a 5 star recipe, I just didnt. I liked everything in this dish, and the tomato topping was a very nice addition. I used fresh plum tomatoes and cooked them until they were very soft. If you like eggplant, I would definately you try this dish.
