"One of the most fabulous one dish meals ever! Eggplant baked casserole style layered with seasoned vegetables and Swiss cheese. Bread, a green salad, wine and it is a feast for any group." — Sally Schuler

As the recipe is written, I'd probably give this 4 stars. However, I made some changes that we loved that made it a 5-star one for us. I used baby eggplants for the flavor and tenderness, used a whole pepper (orange because that's what I had on hand), added 2 cloves of minced garlic, used Italian seasoning instead of the separate spices, substituted 14 oz of crushed tomatoes for half the diced tomatoes, used precooked bacon that I sauteed for a couple of minutes to crisp up nicely, added a pinch of crushed red pepper and used aged provolone in place of the swiss cheese, which I feel is a bit too mild for the bold flavors of the dish. I baked until the dish was bubbly and the cheese was nicely browned. It was delicous and we'll definitely make again with the same revisions I made the first time. We loved it.
My husband hated this, and I was pretty indifferent. I won't make it again.
I'd give this recipe 10 stars if I could!!
I was cooking for vegetarians so I omitted the bacon, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was absolutely delicious!!!!!!
This dish is completely awesome! It's a really different way to make eggplant. I was out of bacon so used polish sausage and it was still great. This is going to become a staple in my house:)
Have made this three times--Everyone asks for the recipe. I vary with or without bacon with who I am feeding. Fantastic.
It sounded great until I read the fine print. Bacon? Bacon and eggplant don't even sound good. It's in the vegetarian section and it shouldn't be.
This had an odd flavor that I don't think would have mass appeal. I suggest making this for yourself and not for guests. I really like Greek moussaka and will stick to that next time.

It's like a cross between chicken pot pie and chicken and dumplings.
