Alright, as I promised yesterday here is my recipe for Eggplant Pasta Excellente!
This is a fantastic summer recipe- it’s full of healthy veggies and yummy goodness!




Eggplant is such a hard vegetable to pair with other side dishes for dinner- I think anyways…. it always seems to go with pasta!  But eggplant parm is just too heavy for these summer months!  I really wanted eggplant so I decided to pair it with my take of summer pasta.  This meal is packed with light summer veggies yet hearty enough to feed your hungriest man!  My husband hates vegetarian nights because he claims the food is too lite and he’s hungry again an hour after dinner– but not with this dish!


First you’re going to want to make your eggplant.  This is the same way I prepare eggplant for eggplant parm…. I’ll share that recipe with you in the fall! 🙂  So, check out yesterday’s recipe for how to make the PERFECT EGGPLANT.


Now, the Pasta Excellente to go with the eggplant.

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
