Low-Fat, Good Fat Eggplant (Aubergine) Casserole

“This is adapted from an old Pennsylvania Dutch casserole to fit my ballet diet:) It is extremely good, low fat and has no "empty calories"- everything fits into the AHA/Diabetic Exchange system. Original credit goes to Rachel Sitler of Berwick, PA for a great, versatile recipe. 1 additional cup of tomato juice can be substituted for tomatoes to make a spaghetti sauce or salsa base. Squash or zucchini, of equal volume and in season, can be used instead of eggplant. This recipe always turns out very good, but I have found that its texture varies greatly with small adjustments in temperature, and from oven to oven. Experiment a little first before planning a dinner party around it:) Serves 3-4. Store leftovers for up to four days.”
