  1. I got some gorgeous eggplant at the farmer’s market and this recipe looked wonderful so I had to try it…however, I didn’t have carrots so I subbed sliced baby bella mushrooms and Italian peppers (that I also got at the market). I served it with a side of spaghetti that I dressed in olive oil and grated parmesan. My family’s ear’s were wiggling as they gobbled it up, it was that good. Thanks for posting.

    1. Omg! Thank you so much Diane for such an awesome comment! I am so glad that your family’s ears were wiggling as they gobbled it up :)lol and I am glad you like this recipe!
