Boy do I love eggplant. Eggplant parmesan, fried eggplant, baked, boiled heck anyway is delicious! Tonight I cooked my grandma (I call her Nana) a yummy and healthy dinner using eggplant!
I chose to make a pasta sauce with ground hamburger and roasted eggplant along with garlic shirataki fettuccine noodles. It tasted delicious!
1 medium eggplant
1/2 tablespoon tuscan herb olive oil
To make the eggplant, cut it into cubes and place in a medium bowl. Drizzle with tuscan herb olive oil and pepper. Roast in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes.
Tomato Basil Meat Sauce:
1 lb of ground hamburger meat
1/2 jar of tomato basil pasta sauce
In a pan, brown the ground beef until it is cooked. Add the tomato sauce and let it warm up. Once the eggplant is done add it to the sauce.
1 package of shirataki fettuccine noodles
2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
In a pan add a drizzle of olive oil and the crushed garlic. Cook for 1 minute then add the noodles. Constantly stir the noodles around for 5 minutes or until the noodles become hot.
Once the pasta is done, make yourself a nice bowl of eggplant fettuccine (:
