READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CP Camper

This dish is a little different and results in a sweet and savory combination that even the most finicky eater will love. Our two year old scarfed it down.

The flavor was really good. I overcooked the eggplant. I always overcook the eggplant! It was dark and mushy. If I ever learn the secret to eggplant, this will definitely be a favorite. I could also see myself modifying the recipe to only include the spinach. Flavor was excellent.
