    Delicious eggplant recipe! Like eggplant parmesan but without the breading and frying. I don't care for onions so left them out and added a slice gypsy pepper instead. This is an easy-to-make dish that we really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I made this tonite, and didn't measure ingredients, but it was really good. I used two large eggplants, and probably more onion than called for. I just purchased a jar of spaghetti sauce, and not sure how many cups were in that jar. I had a bag of freshly grated parmesan and just sliced mozarella. I tore the mozarella into large pieces, and then just covered the entire top with LOTS of parmesan. I loved it. It's not eggplant parmesan, but a very good "almost".

    This recipe was pretty simple to make. I think the flavor really depends on the spaghetti sauce you use. I sent my boyfriend to the store and he bought a super cheap bottle so the whole recipe tasted like that. We also only used 1 onion. I don't know how you could use more. I think with a high quality marinara this could be a really great recipe. Thanks for helping me use up my eggplant!

    I used two onions but I carmelized them, it was a nice twist. This is an awesome recipe!

    Great recipe! We only used two onions and added a little more sauce. Next time we'll put some ricotta cheese to be more of a gluten free lasagna. Something has to be right when my husband and two year old daughter love it and want more of it!

    Bake the eggplant slices or fry them for a bit more body. add spices to you own taste if you feel this is bland. Sprinkle with cheddar instead of parmeson.
