Yesterday I made eggplant lasagna for Sabrina and myself to eat for dinner tonight. Keep in mind that this is the girl who will not eat pizza or chicken or peanut butter. She will eat: strawberry yogurt, string cheese, turkey slices, and apples.
But it was worth a shot, right? She ate it up. Happily. Here's the recipe:
Slice two small eggplants lengthwise (for some reason the grocery store had only teeny tiny eggplants). Salt them and let them sit a while too ooze the bitterness out.
Then saute the eggplant slices in olive oil.
When the eggplant is cooked, do the following:
In a loaf pan, spread a layer of pasta sauce.
Follow that with a layer of eggplant.
Spread ricotta cheese on the eggplant.
Cover with grated mozzarella.
Spoon sauce over the cheese.
Bake at 425 or so for a long time until it's cooked.
Serve to your incredibly picky 4 and a half year old foster daughter and sit back in amazement as she eats it.
