Hi All,

I saw the Eggplant question on the food and points forum thought I would share this recipe. I had made it several times last summer with eggplant from my garden, but hadn't thought of it for a while. It was really popular with my family and I didn't even tell them it was a WW recipe.

(Cooking the liquid out of the seasoned mushrooms raises their flavor
level to new heights.)

Preheat broiler. Spray a baking sheet, 13x9x2-inch baking pan, and
11x5-inch piece of aluminum foil with olive oil spray.

Peel eggplant and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Put on baking
sheet and broil 6 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Remove from broiler and set oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, swirling to
coat bottom. Add mushrooms, onions, garlic, herb searoning, and
salt. Cook, covered, for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Increase heat to high and cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes,
or until pan juices have evaporated, stirring frequently.

Spread 1 cup mushroom mixture in baking pan. Cover with half of
eggplant slices. Sprinkle with pepper. Top with 1/2 cup tomato
sauce and half the mozzarella. Repeat layers except cheese.
Cover with prepared foil.

Bake for 1 hour. Top with remaining mozzarella and all of the
Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cheese
is melted. Cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
