My family and I did not like this recipe at all. I am giving it 2 stars on the basis that we were able to eat it the night I made it. What a shame to waste the time and money. Here's what I found wrong: First off, 1 eggplant was not nearly enough to make more than 1 layer in a 13 x 9 pan. I used a HUGE eggplant that weighed at least 2-3 pounds and it still only gave me 1-1/2 layers. Second, as others have pointed out, the eggplant took such a long time to brown (at least 20 minutes for this step alone, which makes the prep time in the recipe off) and soaked up every bit of the olive oil to where I had to add more for each batch to brown (more than the 8 Tbs called for in the recipe). This in turn made the eggplant goopy and oily. Gross! Lastly, there was too much sauce. The end result was hard to serve, a goopy, saucy mess.
