The mixture was mushy and bland. If I try this recipe again, I will try roasting the eggplant. Also, don't soak bread in water, it was too moist and I had to use extra bread.

This recipe had way too much vinegar in it. But� after I add a lot more sweetener, it was pretty good and my family enjoyed it. I will try it again but next time I am only putting in 1/4 cup of vinegar. The recipe as written tastes like straight vinegar.

This was actually probably the worst Food Network recipe I have tried. I would not make it again, the texture is weird and the flavor is off. Go to Plan B."

This is a fantastic sandwich, even better with some crisp turkey bacon added to the sandwich."

The recipe was good, but really, really salty. I added a container of marscapone cheese to counter it's extreme saltiness. But, it had a good taste once the saltiness was handled."

The directions call for the fruit to be simmered, but there is no direction on the amount of liquid. I would say start with a small amount of water or the filling is too runny. I spread marscapone cheese and minced crystalized ginger on the pizza dough first, it really added to the flavor. But, it was very tasty!"

Usually Giada recipes are some of my favorite. Funny, I followed this recipe exactly which is very unlike me. This soup was good, but not great."

The salad had a wonderful flavor. Next time I will cut the oil in half, it had too much oil in the dressing for my liking, but overall it was very good.""
