Have you ever tasted something for the first time and thought “oh my gosh this is AMAZING!” then crave it the next week? This was me when I first tried this recipe. I actually made it three times in three weeks that is how good I thought it was.
I feel sorry for the eggplant. It either is said to taste like dirt, or it is breaded and fried and served with a red sauce. I don’t think eggplant tastes like dirt –however I will say that it does have an earthy flavor to it, and to be honest I have never had eggplant parmigiana. Maybe I should use the cute little eggplant sitting on my counter and try eggplant parmigiana a for the first time. When I bought my first eggplant I wanted to use it in a way that wasn’t breaded and fried. Shaheen from The Purple Foodie came to the rescue. She had just posted a recipe for stuffed eggplant, after reading the recipe I knew that I had to try it. I have recommended this recipe to several people. Please try it just once, it will change your opinion of eggplant.
