Sliced eggplant sautéed in olive oil is layered with a tangy preparation of macaroni, topped with cheese and baked to create a picture-perfect delicacy! The mild flavour of pepper lingers in the eggplant slices even after it is sandwiched and baked with other ingredients, making it a very pleasant treat to the taste buds. Serve the Eggplant and Macaroni Bake fresh off the oven before it becomes watery.

This is something different from what you make normally.. The tangy macaroni layered between the baked eggplant slices tastes something different.. It is fun to try such out of the box recipe at times..
