This is my favorite recipe in the world. When I first stumbled upon it, the chef who posted it quoted this at the top of the page:
I really think this is what I would eat for my last meal on Earth. It’s so simple and, when done right, sublime.
Although the recipe did sound delicious, I am too much of a carnivore to fall in love with a meatless recipe. Give me a medium well bacon cheeseburger on a homemade bun first. But I made this again last night, and it is probably what I’d request for my last meal. It is just that good.
What’s more, it’s frugal. The eggplant I got for 0.69 per pound. And even though cheese can be expensive, it tastes great with half the amount of cheese the recipe calls for. The magic is in the sauce. Don’t skimp on the onions and garlic.
One other thing: the full tablespoon of crushed red pepper packs quite a kick. I’d recommend cutting it in half, which is what I do, if you have little ones eating it.
Hope to return next week with something substantive to say. Who knows, if they don’t increase the debt ceiling by Tuesday, the world as we know it might come to a screeching halt! Now that will be something worth blogging about, LOL!
Y’all have a sublime weekend.
