This was soo good and soo easy! I omitted the pasta and carrots to cut down on carbs and it was just as good. For me, it was a cross between a soup, stew, and chili. Very tasty!!

Desperately needs additional spices. Quick and easy, though!

This was really thick and hearty. Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, used 14.5 oz cans of beef broth, and 2/3 cup of noodles. Also, put some shredded cheddar on top of each bowl. I loved this soup- my 2 year old ate a whole bowl. You can freeze this also.

This was really awesome! The sugar in it just gives it a touch of sweetness. Even if you don't like (or think you don't) eggplant, try it. There's not an eggplant flavor and it's great! My husband's not a big eggplant fan, but he loved it, too. By the way, he's the one that made it, so it had to be easy and he followed the recipe exactly.

Oh wow. This is one of THE best eggplant recipes I've ever tried and SO EASY! I've halved the ground beef or used ground turkey or sausage with great results. I've also added diced zuchini, squash and extra macaroni, yum. Very hearty and nobody will suspect it has eggplant! I've served it several times for company and always get compliments and requests for the recipe. Thanks!!!

I have been trying different eggplant recipes to use up the excess from the garden and this was by far the favorite. My family of 7 loved it; there was plenty plus leftovers. I used what I had on hand so I had several substitutes: I added some zucchini (1c.) and green beans (3/4c) and left out the celery; increased macaroni to 1 cup. Also I did not have Italian tomatoes so I used 6 medium tomatoes + 2 tsp. Italian seasoning +1/4 tsp. cumin. I used 6c. water + 3 tsp. beef bullion granules + 8 oz. tomato sauce in place of beef broth. I think would turn out great no matter what veggies you throw in!

DELICIOUS! Follow recipe exactly (which I usually don't do) and it turned out perfect! Also, leftovers freeze extremely well.

This was so nice and hearty... used ground turkey instead of beef, and chicken stock instead of beef stock. I was going to omit the noodles altogether, but at the last minute i threw in some whole-wheat cous cous. fantastic!
