I made up this dish while making it. I knew I did not want breaded and fried eggplant and remembered how much we had enjoyed the eggplant cubes that I roasted in the oven for our farro bowls. I decided to roast the cubes and then when they were done I would melt some cheese over the top in the microwave followed by some reheated spaghetti sauce that I had made previously
Since I am currently not eating pasta, I decided to have zoodles (zucchini that has been spiralized.) Previously I had expensively bought the noodles already made from the produce department in the grocery store. But would it be cost effective to buy a spiralizer? Our daughter found a hand held one for sale at Grocery Outlet and since it was only $9 I decided to give it try. As you can see our zoodles came out just like thick spaghetti. I zoodled 2 zucchini which was plenty for the three of us. And it was fun.
So what did I think of our dinner hack? The sort of eggplant Parmesan tasted very like the real deal. And I can see using the Vegetti (the brand of spiralizer) to make a spaghetti substitute which I can sauce in many ways. Win-win!
