I almost deducted a star from this for how insanely long it took, but I changed my mind because I remembered that, in addition to the finished product being absolutely wonderful, it also made 3 meals for my husband and I.
I pan-cooked the eggplant, as per the recipe, but I wound up roasting the potatoes and zucchini (I also ended up having to use almost double the vegetables as were called for.) I also used crumbled gorgonzola instead of feta and romano instead of parm, since those were all I had on hand, and it still turned out magnificent. I personally think the use of the lentils in this dish is genius, and the bechamel sauce tied it all together beautifully. I'm not sure what I did differently from other people, but mine was neither mushy nor crumbly; it was actually perfectly firm and easy to slice through and serve. It really turned out outstanding. I will definitely make this again the next time I have an extra few hours. :)
