This recipe fit right in with the meal plan my husband and I are eating. It was very very good but I did add a little more seasonings to it as we like more flavor. I added the cheese blend at the table as my husband is allergic to dairy. The filling was moist but did not hold together and I wonder if the egg should have been added raw to the meat mixture giving it more binding. Adding a hard boiled egg was a bit odd it tasted fine but didn't really add anything to the mix.
I made this dish because I ve been looking for different ways to cook with ground beef. It was good but I think next time I m going to make a red gravy to top it with and the cheese there just wasn t enough of the tomato taste and maybe a little more basil and a little Italian seasoning.
We stuck to the recipe and loved the flavor. About the only negative is that the eggplant didn't give the amount of pulp that I expected. The result was a very tasty dish that was kind of overbalanced in ground beef and the texture of the eggplant wasn't significant.
