Baked eggplant and a healthier bechamel match up in an Italian classic made virtuous. The cheeses are on top, instead of in layers, with a creamy pink sauce underneath.

    This looks like a good recipe and I can't wait to try it. It would be helpful if the video demonstrating the process had sound. The weird thing is, the advertisement before the cooking demonstration has sound and then the cooking video doesn't.

    Loved this dish. I increased marinara in pink sauce to about 3/4 cup and also used more in layers, using a total of about 24 ounces. I aadded two layers of sauted spinach between eggplant and sauces.

    Actually not suitable for "real vegetarian" because of the Parmesan (Rennet), but I think if you substitute it, its as good as this one. I find it a pity no one cares about how cheese is made or what is in it. But I´m very happy that we have so much product to substitute some ingredients!

    Very good, but it needs twice the marinara sauce (2 cups total).

    Give yourself time to cook this dish... But once done, you'll love it! I serve it over bucatini pasta - absolutely delicious! It tastes just wonderful.

    I substituted mozzarella almond cheese, and it turned out well.

    I caught part of this on the Today Show for the Labor Day segment. I am developing a craving for eggplant but fried eggplant is too heavy unless I drive a bulldozer over it with paper towels.I will use real mozzarella but bake it. Counting calories is so 80's. I used to miss out on truly great flavor by undermining recipes.

    As per usual, no food values are given and this makes this lighter than what?
