    Terri Benson from Shoreline, WA

    This sounds great! Always looking for ways to sneak eggplant into recipes. I will make this without the ham though, want the shrimp flavor to shine.

    It seems to be very difficult to find recipes for eggplant. This one combines many ingredients to achieve a fabulous flavour. The shrimp (my favourite seafood) adds flair to the flavour and completes the all round appeal.

    Eggplant with "Shirmp & Ham Casserole

    Victoria Gahrfeh from Bartlesville , OK

    I never thought that you can use carnation for a sauce to make eggplant that sounds real good, I usually cook eggplant with meat, tomato, cheese, and sprinkle on top pinenuts, so I'm going to try this one, except I like to drain the eggplant slices in a strainer before frying it otherwise it will retain too much oil, I will try to send you some recipes if you'd like thank you
