If you're dating a vegan and you're a bacon-lover, you know what a pain in the keister making something romantic and delicious for them can be. This recipe actually tastes good to people who like food for food's sake; even Tony Bourdain would eat it and like it.
I made it up, because periodically I throw down on the vegan challenge just for fun (vegan challenge: can you make something both delicious and vegan, with no weird processed vegan foods in it ).
If it was summer, I'd use fresh tomatoes and make a tomato lasagne. Since this was made in the winter, it's made with seasonal veggies - spinach, eggplant, mushrooms etc.
