"This is a great meal, I substituted goat cheese for the feta because its richer and goes better with the dish and topped It off with unsalted pine nuts for the gourmet flare! I also added slices of garlic in the cuts along with the tomatoes. Yummy! A favorite for sure!"- Mho12649

Gently press slices open; place tomato slices between eggplant slices. Brush oil over eggplant; sprinkle with rosemary, chopped basil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Bake at 500 degrees F for 15 minutes; sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 4 minutes or until cheese begins to brown. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired.

daniwatson 1 month agoI used Parmesan instead of feta
chapstickluvr 3 months agoI used mozzarella instead of feta. I think next time I'll let the eggplant sweat for a bit before stuffing them and roasting. It was pretty good, though. Will be using this during Lent, I think. Thanks for posting!
dbwiant 3 months agoI made a pesto with the herbs and spices. Spread over eggplant before inserting the tomatoes in the slots. Very important to not cut through eggplant skin as you make the slits.
Alfinator 9 months agoSwapping sundried tomatoes for the fresh ones was the only change I made to this recipe (which worked out really well!). My mouth was confused at every bite: entranced by the feta/olive/tomato flavor, disgusted by the eggplant texture. The eggplant turned out chewy, tough, and slimy. Belch! Awesome flavor lousy texture.

Efoley09 1 year agoI added black olives also, because I love olives and wanted to have a little something extra for these. They weren't bad, though the eggplant is a little hard to cut apart and eat since you don't eat the skin...you have to just cut out the innards. Not too bad but I don't think I'll make them again, just wasn't that enamored.
Tabithamarkus 1 year agoI drizzled a balsamic reduction over the top after I took it out of the oven. It was delicious. Even my 5 year old didn't hate it.
Mec77 2 years agoVery easy, quick and delicious. I had to substitute fresh tomatoes for canned, but it worked well, especially with the tomato juice. As for the feta, I used cheese that was seasoned with herbs and sun dried tomatoes. With a side of whole wheat couscous it was so good!
Farmer260 2 years agoOur family isn't a huge fan of eggplant, but this was good. We added tomato sauce, which we thought made it alot tastier. It was a little bland without it.
crscheid 2 years agoAbsolutely delicious. Keep is to keep it moist by not cutting the whole length so the juices stay in. Combination of tomatoes and feta is great with the meatiness of the eggplant. Will definitely cook this again.
Jimbarb 2 years agoKinda bland, needs more flavor, maybe different cheese or a sauce to go along with it
bonnylass79 2 years agoFinally a recipe that makes eggplant tender instead of spongy. I used tomato slices instead of cherry tomato halves. Very easy to prepare and quick to cook.
melaclaro 3 years agoThis wass excellent. Best, too, when served with a bit of steamed rice or pasta. Thanks for sharing v.
abretudo 3 years agoI would cut the slices thicker and use parmesan or mussarella instead of feta.
donalejo 3 years agoGreat combination of flavors. A keeper!
brettnleosmom 4 years agoMy family does not love eggplant, but we needed to use up some that came in our weekly organic share. The feta cheese and herbs added taste that the eggplant itself lacks.
