Made this for tonight's "all veggie" dinner....hubby's response:

"Have we had this before? When can we have it again?" -- As he went back not for seconds, but thirds.

WIN! Thanks for this idea. I had to make a few modifications for what I had on hand.

I had no chives, added garlic to the pepper / onion sautee cycle instead. Didn't have mozzarella or provolone cheese, but there's this super-sharp white cheddar cheese we buy, Australian brand that's named "Strong & Bitey". I used that for both the slices and the shredded on top, very tasty.

We like spicy food, so when I was sauteeing both the eggplant and the other veggies I added a bit of chili oil I keep on hand. Gave it some really nice heat that was still mellow enough not to overpower the rest of the flavors.

Really really tasty stuff! Thanks for sharing!

LT, I'll bet that would go good on top of a pizza crust. Yummy!
