So today’s post was supposed to be a cookie recipe. However, as I was working on it this weekend, this happened:
Needless to say they are not blog-ready yet.
So, instead, I thought I would share a yummy eggplant recipe with y’all that I recently found. Now, eggplant is not a favorite in our house, mostly because it’s hard to find eggplant recipes out there that are any good. There are a few, but most of them fall into the “edible” category. If you watched my farmers market haul, you know that we had quite a few eggplants to use up. I just had to figure out what to do with them.
This week, while I was planning our meals, I had no idea how I was going to incorporate the rest of that eggplant. I turned to my trusty friend, the Google, and, with a quick search, came across my most favorite eggplant recipe ever. It’s Eggplant Parmesan Rollatini and it is incredible! Eggplant slices stand in for pasta, are filled with cheesy goodness, and covered in tomato sauce and more cheese. I’ve seen lasagna made with zucchini slices, so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to use eggplant in this way before.
This is great for those who aren’t huge pasta fans (me and Jasen), anyone who needs to count carbs, or any vegetarians out there. Even if you don’t fall into one of those categories, it’s tasty, satisfying, and is another way to enjoy those veggies. This is something that is going to become a permanent member of our dinner rotations fo sho. Try it! I know you’re gonna love it!
