You know what I love about AllRecipes.com? With all the variations that others come up with to tweak a recipe it really gives you ideas of how to make it your own. And that's what I did with this one. I liked the basic idea and just switched it up some from others' reviews. I used Italian seasoned Panko instead of the dressing mix. I used parmesan & romano cheeses instead of Colby. I used Italian seasoning instead of just thyme. I did not precook the vegies. Here's how it all went down: "pammed" a 13 x 19 pan; layer of raw diced vegies then layer of Panko layer of cheeses; another layer of each topped with a jar of pasta sauce. Covered with foil baked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Removed foil added more cheese returned to oven for about 10 minutes til cheese was melted and starting to brown. This is one of the best dishes I have ever made! Thanks to all for your wonderful ideas!! Read More

If you like stuffing you'll like this. If you don't though you'll hate it. I altered the recipe to substitute bread crumbs for the stuffing mix but the thyme with the vegetables just has an inescapable stuffing-esque taste. To me it was gross. Lesson learned! Read More

This was tasty. My husband loved it! I did not use stuffing mix because I wanted a lighter version. Instead I sprinkled Italian bread crumbs over each layer. Yum! Read More

I am a vegetarian and LOVED this dish. I had guests for dinner--who aren't vegetarians =:O)--and even their college-aged kids loved it. I recommend peeling the eggplant--the peel tastes bitter to me. Read More

Fairly quick to prepare--add about 15 minutes total prep time to the cooking times. I used a wok to sautee the vegetables as my biggest skillet wasn't big enough. I also recommend using half the stuffing called for in this recipe (or less) as the taste of the stuffing can completely overwhelm this dish; if you use flavored stuffing mix the vegetables just get lost. I might try it again by thinly slicing and layering the ingredients and using very minimal stuffing. I'd call this recipe only average. Read More

Everbody really loved this recipe. Added yellow squash as well to add more color. Also used Italian style stove top stuffing mix and added Italian seasonings to the vegetables when cooking. Added Montery Jack and parmesan cheese to the cheese mixture. Diced the vegetables fairly large and didn't cook quite as long as suggested didn't want them too soft. Was very flavorful and tasty. Have made a number of times already and has always been a winner. Read More

I have made this recipe several times and really like it. It is a great side dish or main dish for lunch. It does make quite a lot but is good as a leftover. Read More

This is definitely worth keeping. My 25-year-old son who is a voracious eater says this is his all time favorite and I make it for him almost every time he visits. This is also delicious cold and has a lot of protein in it. I recommend it highly. Read More

This was delicious! I also tried it with zucchini and yellow summer squash when I didn't have any eggplant and it came out just as good. Read More
