Many vegetables are masquerading as noodles these days. Zucchini, sweet potatoes and carrots are just a few. While these are all excellent options for people looking to go low carb, there's another that's seldom thought of —eggplant! Okay, so you likely won't be able to put an eggplant in a spiralizer and get stable noodles. However, the recipe below shows just how easy it is to get mock lasagna noodles from this purple plant.
First, you peel and slice the eggplant to look just like lasagna noodles. Then, after frying up some Italian sausage with aromatics, you layer everything with cheese and a roasted red pepper sauce that gives it a unique twist. Not only is this eggplant dish one of the healthiest things you'll eat all week, it's one of the most delicious too!
