After baking the eggplant as directed in the recipe and placing them in the pan, I was ready for the sauce to be lathered on top. By the way, as the eggplant was cooking, I made the sauce. My kitchen stayed rather toasty, so this is a recipe I'd recommend making on a day that isn't in the 80s or above...especially if you are pregnant. Wooey, was I warm.
But, BAM! Look at it now!! Oh my goodness. It still looks delicious. Sometimes I wish this was like Willy Wonka where I could just taste the food through my computer. You know, like the wallpaper that you lick? That sounds way more disgusting now that I've written it...act like I didn't say that.
This dish was absolutely a success. My husband liked it (although I did have to pick out the mushrooms for him. He does not have the same love for them that I do). My son even seemed to tolerate it for the most part. We had a bunch of leftovers, which my husband ate. However, he says it is definitely better eaten fresh. Now that I've tried eggplant, I may try it again. This was a successful, tasty, satisfying dish and kinda healthy too! If you've never had eggplant, this would be a good place to start. And, if you have had eggplant, well, you should try to anyways.
