Eggplant Lasagna Dinner

I recently promised myself to step out of my cooking comfort zone and try out a new recipe at least once a week. I haven’t been feeling well today, so I wanted to save my energy for one main dish that I have never made and keep my promise to myself. I chose an eggplant lasagna dinner dish! I have never in my life cooked with eggplant. I have tried it a couple of times, but I have always been a little intimidated by it to be honest. However, the last time we went to our local grocery store, I made it a point to buy a coupe vegetables that I have never cooked with! I finally bought the intimidating eggplant. I am so glad I did! So tonight, I made a dish called Easy Low Carb Eggplant Lasagna from Wholesum – Yum Low Carb Recipes. I have got to say, it turned out pretty good! I will mention while I did follow the recipe for the most part, when it came time to brown the meat I added Worchester sauce. I also I used a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce instead of marinara sauce. Last, I didn’t have ricotta cheese, so I just added extra shredded cheese. Hey, you can’t go wrong with cheese, right? Lol, I also added my own spices, like rosemary and paprika and topped the dish off with some bacon bits. I always end up changing recipes a little, but I think that many of us are like that. I still give credit to this recipe. It was amazing!

Like I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t feeling well. I decided to keep it super easy with the side dishes. When I say easy, I mean I cooked Boil-In-Bag rice! Hey, I have no shame in my cooking game.  😉  I have used Boil-In-Bag rice many, many times and it has become a staple in my food pantry. It hasn’t failed me yet!  My husband always eats white rice with soy sauce, it’s his thing, lol. I looked in my refrigerator for a second side dish and saw we had a bag of some fresh green beans that we got from our local grocery store. I sliced off the ends and placed them in a large pot on the stove. I steamed them on low for about 20 minutes and added salt, pepper and garlic powder. Halfway through I added a tablespoon of butter.

My family loved it and so for me, dinner was a success tonight! 👏🏻☺️🍆🍛🏡
