Regardless of the name's origin,it is a delicious eggplant preparation. This article presents a recipe for this mouth-watering dish.

1 large container ricotta cheese
1 large package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large container of parmesan cheese
1 container Italian spices
1 jar chopped garlic
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 carton of mushrooms (washed well and sliced)
1 dozen eggs
