Tips for easier cooking

I actually have not even eaten this yet but I would give two tips to make the prep easier. 1 dice up the eggplants before you roast the. Has anyone tried to dice after roasting? What a mess! 2 just buy chopped tomatoes if they are going to be chopped anyway. I ask again....has any tried to chop canned whole tomatoes? What a mess!
