It was absolutely easy to make and delicious! I fried up some sausage and added to the sauce, gave it a nice flavor!

Very yummy, I added 1/3 cup of ricotta and an egg to the cheese mix (simply cause I had some I needed to use up) and even leftover it was fab!

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this. I had a smaller eggplant which was enough for us but next time I’m getting the larger one for leftovers
Very simple but tasty recipe. I've added gouda cheese to the tomato base and served it the finished dish with garlic bread. I also added onions to the 1st step (butter and garlic base) Overall it was nice and delicious.

Delicious! We added panko bread crumbs on top of some of them before we broiled and it made it even better! We would have used italian bread crumbs if we had them.

it took a lot of time for the amount it produced for a large size of people (5 people). it was very tasty, we added extra cheese which made it very delicious.
Amazing. I would definitely make again.

Very easy to make, but takes a while. Made it with my daughter. Used reduced fat cheese. Sauce is very flavorful! Eggplant, as always, has a very mild flavor, so Sauce and cheese are the stronger flavors. Will make again.

This is an amazing recipe for people who don't eat meat. My family loved these. I would definitely make them again. I didn't have the parmesan, but they came out ok.

So good! I think I'd add some precooked chicken on top as a "pizza topping" next time. But it was absolutely delightful.

This was delicious! My wife and I loved it! Next time I'm doubling the recipe. Don't skip on the basil or hot pepper flakes!
