This Classic Eggplant Gratin can be served as a meatless main or perfect as a delicious side dish.
I was born into a big Irish Catholic family. I also married into a big Irish Catholic family. So when we get together it is a party. Because my family is so big we love to share the food preparation and usually do some sort of potluck. Some of my family even have signature dishes they like to make. For instance my sister-in-law Mary loves to make deviled eggs. I do not have a signiture dish per say, but I do love to make a Ragu pasta sauce recipe and usually it is some sort of vegetarian recipe.
No, I am not a vegetarian, but I have a few family members who are. A few of my relatives live a few hours north of us and they come down every so often. I love to make them feel at home when they are here so I try to make them a Ragu pasta sauce recipe. Also during the Lenten Season, we traditionally do not eat meat on Fridays. This is kind of a great opportunity to try my Ragu Homestyle on family members that love my meatless meal creations using Ragu pasta sauce.
I also try to make my meals in the slow cooker. It is so convenient and sometimes an oven or microwave is unavailable to heat your food up. This is a wonderful way to keep your food warm.
Here is how I made my dish. I love to serve it with egg noodles.
Peace be with you,
