Was very delicious. Would make again. The only aspect of the recipe that I was not too crazy about was the frying part - I've seen recipes from other sources that permitted the eggplant to be baked rather than fried in peanut oil. As such, while the taste was amazing I couldn't help but feel guilty, wishing that the recipe was more healthy in the form of baking the eggplant instead of frying it beforehand. I suppose moderation (in this case of oils and frying as a cooking method are key) so I would recommend this recipe after all. Cheers.
I never sweat the eggplant... and used a non-stick pan for the frying thus able to use less oil. loved the balance between the cheese and sauce.
I really loved this dish and so did my guests!
