Eggplant is an amazingly versatile veggie and these stacks make quite an impression when plated.
You can make this recipe gluten free by substituting Arrowroot Powder or a gluten free flour in the sauce.
This dish works well alone or on a bed of pasta or greens.
Pasta! A staple in my household. I always have at least 6 packages on hand, both regular and gluten-free.
This Italian version of a traditionally French dish is loosely-based on a dinner my mom used to make when I was growing up.
You can also eliminate the Kite Hill Ricotta which makes it a little less decadent.
I hope you enjoy this dish and invite you to leave your comments below.
I love soup. One of the reasons fall and winter are great times of year is that soup is almost always right! Even in Orange County, CA! I love pea and bean soups and have another recipe for Split Pea Soup on the blog but in this version, I use Trader Joe’s 10 Minute Barley in place of the potatoes and leave out some of the seasonings.
When making this soup, it is always about desired consistency. I used 8 cups of water/stock but you can always opt for more or less. It is all up to you and your personal preferences. I recommend starting out with 6 cups and adding more, a little at a time.
This soup can also be made in the crock pot and the dried, split peas can be soaked overnight to cut down on cooking time.
Any questions/comments, please let me know.
