Eggplant with Ricotta Cheese and Tomatoes

Eggplant with Ricotta Cheese and TomatoesThis is one of those recipes that can be adjusted to fit the number of people dining together.  If you want, substitute pesto for the basil.  A few pine nuts added to the cheese mixture would give this dish a nice crunch.

During the day I am an associate professor and extension food specialist at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. But at night I am a connoisseur of all things food. Eating locally is a great way to enjoy new and different foods. Visit your local farmers markets for seasonal produce. Your farmer and UNL-Extension are excellent resources for using local produce. See you at the market, yeh, we go too!
