This is an excellent Italian recipe! It was cooked and served to us for dinner by an older friend. We really enjoyed it - so she gave me her recipe - and I share it with you. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Many years ago this recipe was given to me as a recipe that was one of (or like)Fannie Farmer's chocolate cookies. My recent research shows that Fannie Farmer lived and published a cookbook in the late 1800's. I have never seen one of her cookbooks though her recipes remain popular.
This recipe has been a favorite in my family for many years, especially with DH. Eggplant is not a vegetable we eat much of - but we do like this casserole! I usually make it as a main dish - but it could be used as a side.
This recipe is totally cooked in the microwave. (With the exception of boiling the noodles - and those can be bought precooked these days.) There are no messy skillets to clean up AND your kitchen stays cool on those hot summer days.
