Delicious! My husband and I both loved this. My only complaint is that there is no measurement for the last ingredient (I just guessed on it), and I ended up with way more eggplant than would fit in my Dutch oven. However, maybe I just bought a really big one! I'll definitely make this one again. I served it with Roasted Garlic muffins (which I will post shortly), which really complemented the flavors.
