I made this amazing Cheesy Stuffed Eggplant Recipe this week and my husband couldn’t get enough of it. I presented them as pictured and he only took half of slice. After he tried it, he took the whole eggplant. I was able to grab a few pieces before he swooped in and ate it all.
If you’re cooking dinner for a vegetarian crowd, then this Cheesy Stuffed Eggplant Recipe is perfect to serve as a main dish. It’s big, hearty and very filling.
I top my eggplant with fresh cut basil. Its pepperiness enhances the tomato flavor inside the filling. If you don’t have any fresh herb available in your fridge, you use dried basil or a combine it with dried oregano as well.
One of my favorite to cook with is eggplant. You can fill it, roll it, cube it or use it as a tasty spread. I love the fact that this vegetable is sturdy enough and versatile enough to cook with.
