I made this dish for my VERY picky in-laws and they loved it. I ended up modifying the recipe and I think that helped make it so good. I used italian bread crumbs instead of plain ones and I also mixed a 1/2 teaspoon of cyanne pepper with the breadcrums for a little more spice. Also, I added 2 teaspoons of minced galic and I chopped up 2 red bell peppers to add another flavor. It was great and I was requested to make it again for Christmas dinner!


I was in an eggplant mood and wanted to do something different than the usual. I tried this recipe but I was disappointed. Cooks would have better luck substituting brocolli or spinach for the eggplant. The minute I read "boil" the eggplant, I had doubts. But that is just me; I love this quirky vegtable but it must be either panfried or oven baked at high temperature. This recipe is not a total failure, it smells good and looks inviting all brown and crunchy on top- I just prefer my eggplant anything but boiled. Thank you anyway.


This dish went was gone before it hit the table. I did some changes though. Did not skin the squash,added fresh chilies to boiling water ( instead of canned), and mixed the cheese into the dish, topped with bread crumbs. I did not quite feed six of my family but I think that's because it was so good. The best recipe gives you the basics to have fun with ;)
