Really great Eggplant Recipe

Thought i would share this new recipe i tried a couple nights ago. We really enjoyed it and it was healthy and easy. It is a fish and eggplant recipe but i left out the fish and it was still really great. So if you like fish or have it handy you can enjoy that too!

From Parties, Potlucks and Barbecues. Taste of home books.
