Blogger Angie McGowan of Eclectic Recipes brings new life to the fail-proof pasta bake with eggplant, fire-roasted tomatoes and plenty of panko.
SAVE ON THIS RECIPE!
If you don’t have an immersion blender, also called a stick blender, transfer the eggplant mixture to a blender; cover and blend until pureed.
Panko bread crumbs are coarser than regular bread crumbs, and help create a crispy topping on this casserole, but plain unseasoned crumbs can be used if that’s what you have on hand.
You can peel the eggplant or leave it unpeeled for this recipe.
