Loved this dish. I sort of improvised by using a muffin tray and layered it with grilled eggplant, tomato sauce, ricotta mix and mozzarella and some more eggplant on top and baked for about 8 mins. Very tasty

We loved this dish. I did the tomato & cheese & baked it until the cheese melted & had it with salad.

Why don't they put in the calories per serve in their recipes?

This was yummy, even the children liked it. Had with tomatoe paste and cheese. Very first dish I have tried, really looking forward to making and trying some others, if they all taste as nice as this. I'm liking this new eating pan

I tried this and it was delish. Just added tomato as suggested by 'witchymamma and layered like a lasagne. Didn't even miss the pasta.
