I made this dish tonight for dinner, and like other reviewers, found it a bit bland. Good (but not rich or solid) flavor, but...lacking something. I used ground beef and 1/2 the eggplant (was afraid my eggplant-phobic hubby would reject it and leave a massive casserole for me to eat solo. I also chose to cook up the mushrooms and eggplant a bit after the leeks were sauteed and wined. I also half browned the ground beef before wrapping in pasta to ensure food safety. Ended up baking for about 40 minutes.
All in all, I'm sitting on the fence with this one...it's a fair amount of work for a *pretty good* but not super dish...but my hubs did not notice the eggplant and enjoyed it :) so it may be a good dish for stealthy use of my garden abundance. I may or may not make it again.
