Yummy.  My six year old daughter loved it as well.


I followed directions specifically but doubled for larger serving and it was great had three adults one 16 yr old and a 9 year old there was nothing left excellant


My family and I liked this recipe.  I did add the 1/2 tsp. of sugar as suggested, but I also added an additional can of tomato sauce to thin it out a little more.  Thanks for this recipe.  :)


I made this for dinner tonight. I took both of the above suggestions--added 1/2 T of sugar and sliced the eggplant into thinner pieces. I added an onion and I was out of tomato paste, so I just left it out. It turned out great, anyway!
