Rasta Pasta
Great hit with the entire family, and a fun diversion on pasta and red sauce. Tonight, I had all the ingredients except green pepper, so I substituted yellow squash, and otherwise followed recipe other than using olive oil instead of butter and serving red pepper flakes to top after after serving. (Okay, I also probably used twice as much curry, since we halved the recipe for the four of us.) We're a household of spicy food fans, so didn't need bread to dilute the heat. Delightful twist to regular pasta and sauce! I used a can of Hunt's herb & garlic pasta sauce. I loved the freshness of the peppers and the yellow squash I added, which is great in this, after a quick stir-fry, so I wouldn't simmer for 15 min., as suggested by another review. HINT: Get water boiling for pasta, and throw pasta into boil AFTER browning and setting chicken aside. Everything should be finished at about the same time. Definite make-again for us! Loved the easy one-pot cleanup, too. Thanks, Linda.

Crunchy Eggplant Parmesan
So my husband (who "hates" eggplant) was out and I decided to treat my daughter and myself to a dish we rarely eat, and I found this less-fattening version. Wow! I followed exactly except that I already had chopped onions and green peppers, which we use in everything, so sauteed those for the sauce. Amazing. Panko is a great sub for regular breadcrumbs. Son and hubby came home and both LOVED IT! I love that it's not fried. No bad fats, no need for salt except what was in the sauce. Next time I'll use my homemade sauce. So glad to bring eggplant to the whole family! Kudos to Mama Smith!

Best Fried Green Tomatoes
This makes the perfect breading! It stays together and browns beautifully with a delicious crunchy texture. I used panko for the breadcrumbs, and we sliced green tomatoes and eggplant. Both fried perfectly in canola oil. This is now our breading for fried treats.
