PREPARATION

With a sturdy spoon, scoop the flesh out of each eggplant half, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells; reserve the shells. Sprinkle the inside of the shells with the salt, invert onto a plate, and let stand for 30 minutes. Dice the flesh and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Turn the eggplant shells over, pat dry, and place on a baking sheet. Bake until softened, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside. Leave the oven on.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, diced eggplant, zucchini, and mushrooms and sauté until the mushrooms begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the tomato, parsley, basil, and bread crumbs; stir to combine and season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.
Fill the baked eggplant shells with the vegetable stuffing, mounding it loosely. Bake for 20 minutes; serve hot.
