I have never thought that eggplant would be good, but this recipe is making me think that it just might be worth a try!
Thanks for sharing, Leigh

Sounds great. Will have to try it. Although this recipe has eggplant in it, I would love for someone to put out a recipe for Eggplant Parmesan. I used to have the recipe but it has been misplaced. Could someone please post the recipe Eggplant Parmesan.
