  1. I made the mushroom pasta for dinner last night and OMG!!! It was a hit at my house. I made a huge pot and added some broccoli. It came out perfect. I was hoping for leftovers for today but we ate it all last night. I’m going to try the ratatouille one tomo. I can’t wait 🤤

  2. Here's a tip if your eggplant tends to get bitter: take some regular table salt and sprinkle it over the sliced/cut eggplant.. Let that sit for 15 to 20 mins then take a towel and wipe all of that salt away. Its easier to cut the eggplant into slices then do the salting and finally chop the eggplant into smaller sections!
