Eggplant Lasagna Medley

A scrumptious medley using two variations of tender baby eggplant and three delicious types of mushrooms makes this dish quick and easy to prepare. It's very reminiscent of cooked food, and nice to gently warm on a cold winter day.

Barbara, this lasagna looks delicious! I am inspired to make it next weekend - when I have the chance to get my hands on some organic baby eggplant.

That sounds so wonderful! Comforting and hearty but not overly heavy.

I'm due an eggplant in my CSA box this week, but we'll see if it's a big one--if so, I might wait to lay hands on something more tender...
