Very good, husband loved it and usually hates aubergine and veggie food. Had no cherry toms so added a grated carrot, added a whole red chilli, used thyme instead of oregano and added a teaspoon of marmite. don't like soggy bread so baked stew with mozzarella, parmesan and pine nuts and served with crusty bread. got a little left over for lunch tomorrow! yum!

I ran out of onions so used capers which gave it a lovely bite, I also used mozzarella which was lovely. The bread is gorgeous, crispy on top with the flavours soaked in underneath. This is a new favourite!

Delicious, this will become a regular, added a stock cube and tomato puree. Also added the cherry tomatoes and chickpeas at the same time as the tinned tomatoes. Served with cheesy garlic bread to use up the leftover french bread.

I'm an inveterate carnivore but I love this just as it is. I've made it with various vegetables depending on what I've got and it's always delicious - the only thing I regularly do differently is to add some chopped garlic to the cheesy toasts, which makes them even better.

It looked and smelled great, was easy to make but tasted just ok. It was very filling and the bread on top was lovely.

I had read some of the other comments so added stock instead of just water and also a tablespoon of my homemade morrocan tomato jam for a bit of a kick. I didn't have any cherry tomatoes so used a courgette instead. We really loved the little cheesey toasts!!

I make this recipe with no extra water, lots of salt, pepper and sugar. Also for something extra put some cayenne pepper in and paprika for some spice. Doesn't need any meat when aubergines are so good. Don't get me wrong i love meat but this doesn't need it. highly recommended.

Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly and it was lovely. Would definately recommend if having vegetarians over for dinner.

Made this for dinner this evening and it was lovely and extremely easy! Instead of aubergine I added courgette, I also added some sweet potato which was delicious! Wanted to add some chorizo as other testers suggested but didn't have any so I put some salami in and this added a nice flavour. Also didn't add the water as suggested might add this next time or some extra tomatoes perhaps. Used a frozen M&S garlic baguette that I had left over and it was yummy!

Amazing! Although I use a whole (just over foot long) baguette and squash as many slices across the top as I can, because that's the best bit!

Lovely flavours and very easy to make. I'm vegetarian and despite the topping of bread and parmesan, felt it lacked something. I have some left in the dish so will use it tomorrow with a baked potato and cheese on top of it all.

I added some courgette which worked well and next time I make this will add other vegetables too.

Found this very bland. Most was thrown in bin.

sounds really nice, and i love the idea of adding the chorizo, but not too sure about the bread, any other ideas?

I made this for a second time last night and once again it was a success. Both times Ive used courgettes instead of an aubergine - I also added a red pepper and a red birds eye chilli last night. Find it's great to eat alone so I just double the portion rather than adding a salad!

Just used breadcrumbs for the top. Made this as to accompany a meat dish for dinner with some friends. The vegetarian had to fight the meat-eaters off! Delicious.
