    Excellent dish! I did make a few minor adjustments, though. . . I did not peel the eggplant (I prefer the texture with the peel). I also don't like green peppers, so I left those out. Since I didn't have any Italian seasoning, I just added some basil, oregano and thyme. Lastly, I used an Italian blend of cheese (cheaper that way than buying mozzarella and parmesan separately!). The pepper flakes add a great kick to the dish. I served this with angel hair pasta and texas toast. Thanks so much for sharing!
