CHEESY SCALLOPED EGGPLANT CASSEROLE





CHEESY SCALLOPED EGGPLANT CASSEROLE
This easy casserole is surprisingly good. I will make this one many times.  I used Japanese eggplant that were going over slightly (getting wrinkly) and they were perfect in this dish. Never will I feed eggplant to the jungle around me again!  Seriously, how do I hide the fact from my husband that I've let my eggplant go past their date?  My husband hates to see food go to waste!  That's what I do...the jungle enjoys my eggplant!  I'm surprised I don't have eggplant growing there by now.

  about 6 cups (1.5 L)
