Melanzane al Forno (baked eggplant)

Several years ago I had to "downsize" my large cookbook collection.  I cut out some recipes from an old 1970s cookbook, selecting recipes that I thought I would like to make in the future.  About four years ago I started making this recipe and have had many compliments on it.  It is a meatless dish, melanzane is Italian for eggplant.  The Italian phrase "al forno" means "at/from the oven." Unfortunately, I do not have the recipe creator's name.

The recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, I used it on Clint's since he is doing a version of the Adkin's Diet.  On mine I used fresh grated Parmesan cheese.  Clint is a "meat and potatoes" guy but he loved this dish.

You're damn right I love this dish. You shoulda' taken a pic of the dish after I got thru ravishing it. Man, it looked like the German blitz of 1939---no prisoners.
