Thought fresh herbs would taste better, but we actually preferred it with dried!
Served on crackers at Farmer's Market program. Easy to fix, and transport for serving. This was also great added to cooked macaroni and sprinkled with parm. cheese.
Recipe was well received even though many of the clients have never eaten eggplant. Nice job!
