Although portion size is not listed, I really enjoyed this recipe-my Mother taught me that the first time you make a recipe follow it exactly-I omitted the salt- otherwise followed directions to a t. It has a really great flavor- will make it again when the herbs in my garden are ready to be plucked and eggplant is available at the local farmers market-
