Recipe News: Kid Friendly Eggplant Recipe- Not Your Mama's Parmesan!
"Have you ever searched the produce section of the grocery store in hopes of finding a vegetable your kids will get excited about. I have, and I was drawn to the dark skinned, kidney shaped eggplant. I ate alot of my Mom's eggplant parmesan as a kid and I always loved it. So, I thought I'd make up a batch of that. Some sauce some sauteed, breaded eggplant smothered in mozzerella cheese and my kid eats her veggies, done! It didn't work out quite that well. My two-year old ate some of the eggplant but she seemed put off my it's texture and mostly pulled off and ate the cheese.
Undaunted, I bought another eggplant (because I love it) and plotted to hide it from my child's texture sensitive taste buds. I browned some ground turkey meat and pureed that and the eggplant and invented Baked Corkscrew Pasta and Eggplant Casserole. The corkscrew pasta is hearty and does not break up when you mix it together with the other ingredients and it is an interesting shape for little ones. The dish is simple to make and this time my daughter got her veggies down without even knowing she was doing it :)"
