Yes, but by the time you bring it to a boil again, it is cooked enough for me. I guess you could steam it a bit first.

This is delicious!

Ingredients:
Olive oil/ cooking spray
cup ff parmesan
1 cups bread crumbs
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 eggplants (app. 8 oz. each)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 small zucchini, coarsely chopped
cup crumbled feta
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
Set oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix cup of the parm, cup of bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and set aside. Half an eggplant lengthwise and scoop out the eggplant flesh, leaving a inch thick shell. Sprinkle the shells with olive oil and salt and roast in oven for 25 minutes, or until they are tender. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, onion, garlic and oregano. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes, or until onion softens. Coarsely chop the eggplant flesh. Add it to the pan with tomatoes, zucchini, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through. Remove the pan from heat and leave to slightly cool. Stir the feta, remaining 1 cup of bread crumbs and half cup parm into the warm eggplant mixture. Taste for seasoning. Fill the eggplant shells and top with bread crumb mixture. Bake for 35 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden and the mixture is hot.

Here is a recipe I love! Smells just like a pizza while baking.

Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes

Slice small eggplant across into 1/4 inch slices (I leave the skin on)

Slice 3 plum tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices

Put eggplant and tomato slices into large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 tsp. dried basil (or 6 fresh basil leaves), and salt and pepper to taste.

Spray a cookie sheet with olive oil spray and arrange eggplant in a single layer on sheet (overlapping as little as possible), arrange tomatoes on top of eggplant slices. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until vegetables are nicely browned, in a preheated oven at 425 F. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan cheese and serve.

I hope you enjoy it if you try it!

Before you do anything with it, slice it, put the slices in a colander, salt them and let them sit. Then rinse and press them dry. That takes the excess water out of it.

I wish eggplant was something that I can like, but I just can't! Ugh! I don't know why either, because I love squash and just about everything in the family, lol!

I hear that putting it in lasagna or making egg plant parmesean is a good way to use it...

I love eggplant. I put slices on top of my spaghetti and strips in my green curry. So easy!
