A nice change, leaving out the lasagna. I like to add some sliced mushrooms and hot peppers. This is another dish that you can experiment with and make it to suit your own taste. Do ahead and pop it in the oven 1 hour or so before serving. With eggplants I find it depends on the age and size whether you peel it or not. I recommend that you peel them. I also substitute unpeeled Zucchini for the eggplant.
