    Hi Laurie...this recipe looks wonderful! I have one question. You mention that you "cube" the eggplant flesh then remove it from the skin. I assume that this cubed eggplant goes back into the saute right? You don't just throw it out do you? If I'm right, do you add it to the pan right away with the onions, celery and green pepper, or do you add it later in the process? Thanks for your help!
