Eggplant Casserole

This vegetable side-dish casserole recipe goes well with chicken and fish. The original recipe, from the 1950s, called for eggplant when likely only one type was available. Today's cooks have more choices. Whichever variety is used, purchase slightly more than a pound to equal the 5 to 5-1/2 cups of cubes needed for this recipe.
