How can you go wrong with something that is fried... and then smothered in spaghetti sauce and mozzarella?
The recipe that I used to cook the eggplant is here. I had never heard of putting salt on your eggplant and letting it "weep" to rid it of bitter juices.
I was the only one who ended up eating the eggplant. In his defense, Tim did try it. And stated that he did not like it. I definitely think it's worth a try. One decent sized eggplant could feed an entire family. If you grow it yourself or are given one, that's a pretty good deal. I have no idea what they go for in the store.
We'd like to thank our sponsors for this meal. Amanda- rice pasta. Tim's parents- eggplant. My uncle Randy- fresh green beans. We never turn down free food. Well, almost never. :)
