    We really enjoyed this dish and it was so healthy. Only thing I changed was to use Australian Cheddar cheese instead of the mozzarella as that was what I had on hand.

    Good recipe! Not a knock-your-socks-off recipe, but flavorful and easy enough to make. I was glad to use eggplant and actually have it turn out okay. Other recipes I've tried, it is always chewy or burnt, but this method of cooking really worked for me. I subbed red bell pepper, but otherwise followed as written.
