Cheesy Baked Orzo with Eggplant

I'm really very sorry it's been almost a week since I last posted.  I had two plans to cook that were thwarted as well as a slight bought of laziness.

But I'm back!


Dinner tonight was an awesome recipe from Smittten Kitchen, baked orzo with eggplant and mozzarella.  I'll let you all know a few things about how I followed this recipe: no tomato paste, no onion, no fresh oregano, used canned tomatoes instead of fresh.  I was really scared about not cooking the pasta first, it cooks in the vegetable stock in the oven.  I trusted Deb because in all honestly she sure knows how to cook way better than I do.  Of course she didn't let me down.  This dish is incredible.


Lots of veggie chopping in this recipe, but don't let that turn you off.


Carrots, tomatoes, and celery cooking while the cooked eggplant hangs out in the background.


Cheesy goodness.  Only problem? Definitely need to double the recipe next time.  No leftovers = disappointing lunch for me tomorrow.
