I through this recipe together based on The Temporary Vegetarian's Eggplant Parm. I had the ingredients, and was happy to get the tomatoes, zucchini, bread crumbs, and a good deal of the cheese used up. I love feeling so productive. This was also something that I put together on Sunday so was able to quickly throw in the oven on Wednesday without much thought to dinner. Such a deal is a working mom's dream! I just wish I had more time on Sundays to get those meals together.
This week, I will feature a series of posts, the inspirations of which came from the fascinating cookbook, The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper. It is more than just a list of recipes. The book also highlights little known facts, dispels myths, and makes specific grocery list recommendations. Perhaps after I highlight some fabulous experiences with the book, you will want to acquire one of your own.
Ok, the first thing about this recipe is DON"T TURN YOUR NOSE UP AT IT! It came out of the Moosewood Simple Suppers cookbook. Moosewood also has recipes for fruit flavored mousse. It doesn't taste like cheese. It just tastes like fluffy chocolate.
This is a great recipe to do something productive with the leftovers from lasagna. Moreover, why not serve it as dessert FOR the lasagna? The recipe is easy, but I think I remember asking my husband to mix the ingredients because he could do it faster than me. Time is of the essence because the chocolate chips can harden so quickly.
