This sounds like it’s all cheese and I don’t think you’d appreciate the taste of the eggplant. I like the sauce recipe minus so much oil. I would make this with 1/4 of the cheese used here, possibly less. I would also sprinkle crispy breadcrumbs over the eggplant layers. I love cheese but this was overkill. Sorry!
I love eggplant so as soon as I saw this recipe I had to make it. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I liked that the eggplant wasn’t breaded or fried.The marinara was good, but I really didn’t understand the need for a whole cup of olive oil. I’ll make eggplant this way from now on but I’ll probably use my go to marinara recipe instead of this one.
