    A delicious and easy vegetarian meal, although I made a few changes. I felt the stacks needed a bit more flavor, so I added minced garlic to the marinade and then sprinkled grated romano cheese inbetween each layer. (Also be sure to season everything with salt and pepper.) I chopped the mushroom stems, leftover onion and eggplant and sauteed in olive oil with 4 cloves of minced garlic, then added a can of diced tomatoes to make a quick pasta sauce. It simmered while the stacks cooked in the oven. I served the stacks with pasta and sauce; the entire meal was satisfying and delicious. I feel that this dish needs slightly higher heat or a longer cooking time, especially if you cut your slices on the thicker side!  -  19 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really tasty.. Earlier in the day I grilled the mushroom, onion, and eggplant to give it a nice smoky flavor. Then when we were ready for dinner, i just popped it in the oven. Next time, I think I'll try it with fresh mozzarella cheese. mmmmmmm...  -  05 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
