We needed some travel-ready food for both …
This hearty lasagna uses thinly-cut eggplant in place of carb-filled pasta noodles. The trick here is to slice that eggplant nice and thin (slicing the short way makes this easier) before roasting to keep it tender, melt-in-your mouth gooood! We love the subtle, smoky flavor that the roasted eggplant brings to this dish and don't miss those noodles one bit... (read more)

We've just returned to our cabin from a week-long, relaxing and fun camping retreat with a bunch of our music-loving friends!
