    This is great! I made a few minor changes by using dried dill weed and also in the yogurt mixture adding some feta that I wanted to use up and also added dried mint. Delish but makes lots! Thanks for sharing!

    Euyeuoto! Delicious!! Seasonings are right on. I used ground lamb instead of shoulder meat. Really can’t tell that the eggplant is there. Next time would drain the canned tomatoes first. This is huge so froze rest. I would probably omit the yogurt topping next time or sprinkle on a bit of cheese. Served with carrots sprinkled with cinnamon, recipe#428681, and for dessert recipe#173165. Thank you Paula for sharing. Made for the Unrulies Under the Influence during ZWT6.

    Delicious flavors, but next time I'll use about half as much orzo. I agree with the other reviewer that you don't even notice the eggplant. Also, I added some feta to the topping, which worked well.
