You guys: we’re almost there! Just four days from now is Christmas (or three days for Christmas Eve, if you’re like my family and do much of your celebrating the night before!). Just four days! I feel like this year has flown by – I mean, I’ve been married for over 6 months now. I’m sure 20 years from now that will feel like just the blink of an eye, but right now I can’t believe it’s been that long already! 🙂
I’m extra excited this year since not only will it be me and the hubby’s first Christmas together, but we are going to Hawaii! I have never been, so the idea of sun-bathing and snorkeling in the dead of winter is slightly foreign to me, but I think I will easily get on board with that plan!
So since I apparently need to be beach-body-ready in the middle of winter, we’ve been trying to eat a little healthier. Maybe. Sort of. Vegetarian is healthy, right?! Today’s recipe is a tasty one: eggplant stuffed with spaghetti! It’s super simple: like, the hardest part is just hollowing out an eggplant. Be sure to try to get it as close to a 1/2 inch thickness as possible – otherwise your eggplant halves will likely take more time to cook in the oven. You definitely want them cooked well to prevent any bitter flavors from coming through in the dish.
Meanwhile, boil your pasta water and prepare your spaghetti with tomato sauce. If you simply can’t get on board with vegetarian today, you could use a meat-based sauce to toss your noodles in instead! Top with mozzarella cheese and cook under a hot broiler until the cheese is melty, bubbly, and starting to brown. These are super simple to make – ready in just 45 minutes!
