Absolutely love this! Even my family loves it! In the summer, I use fresh tomatoes from the garden in place of tomato sauce. Zucchini tastes good in place of yellow squash. If you don't have Portobellos, other mushrooms work fine, even canned. I also use cottage cheese, as I don't care for ricotta. And for anyone who doesn't think they like eggplant, try this once and see if you can even taste the eggplant. This dish has a meaty taste. Some days I serve it as the entre of a meal. It reheats well, too. If you find it too bland, add more garlic and seasonings such as oregano and basil, but we find it wonderful and make it as often as we get nice eggplants! Thanx so much for this recipe!

Made this as directed I found this to be very bland. It needs more salt or spices. The Hubs even added a bit of Worcestershire sauce, his cure all. Don't know if I'll make this again.

You can use zucchini in place of the eggplant. About 2-3 larger ones sliced lengthwise in 1/4 or 3/8" slices should do. And Roma or Italian plum tomatoes would be good, 2-3 or more in place of the tomato sauce so things don't get too"juicy" and make the texture of the dish too watery. Just replace these other ingredients in the rotation where it says eggplant or tomato sauce. Riccota cheese is thick so it can take a few watery veggies. Even though the nutritional info doesn't measure potassium, this is loaded with potassium.

Sounds good except for the eggplant. Any suggestions for a replacement?
