DH's verdict: very nice, but please add onion and probably lose the cheese.

He found the cheese very cheesy in the mouthfuls that had cheese, and preferred the mouthfuls of "underneath" stuff which had no cheese on.
I think it might be a bit different if he was having the eggplant & sauce with a load of salad leaves and some nice crusty bread for a main meal - cheese could be added in successfully.
But as part of his dinner, no cheese, next time please. Or, maybe it would be different if I'd had parmesan to grate - it might have given a crust over the whole dish?

I'm just really happy that he wants a next time emoticon
This was certainly a straight forward "side" to make for his dinner, and will last for 2 meals, because of the sauce-coating on the eggplant.

Thanks again for sharing.

Thanks for this recipe, ArmyMom.

I personally cannot eat egg plant. DH, on the other hand, really enjoys it :(
There are a few dishes that I make for DH - tried and tested, and he's happy to eat his egg plant in those ways.
But I had been wondering about some form of moussaka, or even a sort-of lasagne, using thin slices of egg plant instead of pasta.

I'll give your recipe a go, hopefully some time this coming week, and see how DH gets on with it.
