Grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Prepare sauce according to directions using milk. In a large bowl, stir sauce, macaroni, Parmesan cheese, eggs, nutmeg and pepper set aside.

In a 10- inch skillet over medium heat, sauté onions in oil for 10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 5 minutes longer or until vegetables are beginning to brown. Stir in eggplant. Sauté for 5 minutes or until eggplant is softened. Mixture will be dry. Stir in tomatoes with liquid, tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until thickened and liquid is mostly evaporated.

Place all but 2 cups of the macaroni mixture in baking dish. Spread with eggplant mixture. Top with remaining macaroni mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. If making ahead, cover and refrgerate up to 24 hours.

Bake eggplant, uncovered, in a preheated 350° oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with Muenster cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through. Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
