Stuffed Eggplant

Eat More Vegetables

That’s right, eat more vegetables. I know, sometimes it is hard and we’re adults. Children can also be known as fussy eaters too. The best way to get vegetables into the fussy ones is to disguise them and add a bit of cheese. It works with me! Recipes like this though are a tasty way to get your daily hit of vegetables. The Basic Bolognaise Sauce is the base for the Stuffed Eggplants and can also be used with other vegetables as well. Try this and see how you go.
