This is an excellent recipe! It was absolutely delicious! A few things that I would recommend - I made for 6 people and I probably should have used from 1 - 1 1/2 cups of dried bread crumbs instead of 2 cups (threw away probably at least 3/4 cup of crumbs). Also, I am shocked that it only calls for 1 jar of Ragu sauce. This is definitely not enough sauce to cover this recipe. This recipe SHOULD call for a jar and a half, minimum. Thankfully I had bought another jar to cover all the layers anyway. I used Ragu 6 cheese and the flavor was perfect for this dish. Overall, very wonderful dish.


This is a keeper for me because it is quick and easy and I like the idea of the no frying as it is a healther version. I did have to use 2 jars of sauce. I like Bertoli garlic and oil. I used 2 cups of bread crumbs,you really need it and can't avoid wasting some as it clumps when you dip the eggplant and the clumps have to be thrown out. I did throw away part of the egg mixture though and felt 3 eggs with 2T of water would have been enough for dipping. I turned the eggplant 1/2 way through the cooking process and found 25 minutes enough. I served sweet Italian sausage on the side and found it was a nice compliment, as suggested by another reviewer. I have a pan that is slightly larger than a 9x13 and that worked out better for me. Spray your foil before putting it on and the foil won't stick. A good and easy recipe.


My husband and I love this. No grease, and so yummy! I used eggplant & zucchini, and put some peppers & onions in the oven while the other veggies were getting toasty. Layered it all with sauce (about two jars) and mozzarella cheese. Hubby doesn't like parm cheese. Still wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!
