Eggplant Marinara Bake

Eggplant Marinara Bake

Introduction

I'm a HUGE fan of eggplant. My boyfriend is always excited when I cook because I introduce him to new things outside of his 'meat and potatoes' palate. So I jumped at the chance to introduce him to the lovely eggplant, but my only issue was that he can't stand the sight of them cooked, and I'll admit they are a little bit unappealing! So I created this! I'm a HUGE fan of eggplant. My boyfriend is always excited when I cook because I introduce him to new things outside of his 'meat and potatoes' palate.
