    I really enjoyed this. I peeled the eggplant, as other reviews suggested. I doubled the tomato paste and water to make this a little more "saucy." Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. The ricotta cheese added some good flavor, without it I would think this would be a bit bland. Yummy!

    I wanted a less moist ricotta on top, so I substituted Ricotta Salatta (pressed, salted

    Delicious! My husband doesn't like eggplant so I used portabella mushrooms instead. Easy, simple, definitely a keeper. Thanks.

    And, don't even try to figure out how my comment is posted THREE times .. I'm not sure myself! First it wasn't there at all; then appeared in triplicate.

    Quite tasty! But, I think it would have been better if the eggplant had been peeled. Other than that small change, it is a recipe worth making again!

    Quite tasty! But, I feel it would have been better if the eggplant had been peeled. Other than that, I think the recipe is certainly worth making again!

    I made this tonight and it was delicious. However, I halved the entire recipe and doubled the amount of red pepper flakes since I like spicy food. I also added 8 oz. of ground beef when I cooked the onions and garlic, and it was fantastic and hearty. I also peeled my eggplant because I hate tough eggplant skin. I'll make this regularly.

    I also added medallions of mozzerella. This was a simple yet delicious pasta (even enjoyed by those who thought they didn't like eggplant).
