dianne s eggplant parmesan


i love eggplant in any form or fashion and this recipe sounds simple and delicious. although the recipe does not call for a serving of pasta, this dish would be nice next to (or on top of) some angel hair pasta. this dish sounded so good while i was typing it that i sent my hubby to the corner grocery store for a few ingredients. looks like we will be having this for dinner tonight. recipe appears in the church supper cookbook.
