|baking the eggplant|
This is only the second time I've worked with eggplant. The first time didn't turn out so hot. But I know my husband enjoys eggplant parmesan, and when I saw this recipe in Real Simple, I figured I should give it a shot. And we were not disappointed! It was so cheesy and delicious. I would definitely recommend this as a great weekend meal. (The directions say you can make it ahead but only up to four hours ahead or the cheese mixture will separate, so not really something to make Sunday night and have later in the week.) Pair it with some bread, a salad, and you're good to go.
