Eggplant Meat Lasagna

"I had been planning on making a meat pie with ground meat and puff pastry dough for a dinner party, but 2 hours before the party, I realized that instead of buying pastry sheets, I had bought pastry shells, which would never work. So after the compulsory freak out, I created this dish and was glad I did, because we finished every drop!"

    Horrible! Sorry, I am not a great cook, and always follow the recipes, and this was the first time when I ruined the dinner and had to throw everything away :( The lasagna shells were so hard that we couldn't cut through, the bottom ones. Middle tasted good, but no thank you - I have made regular lasagna before, and it was not even close to what happened to this one. And we LOVE eggplant, what a waste...

    I loved the eggplant in this dish! The sauce seemed a bit out of place with the ground beef, it might just be my marinara, so I think I'd use something more Mexican style next time although I'd be careful with the salt because mine was a bit salty.


I'm a 27 year old mother of one and I LOVE cooking. Unfortunately, my husband and I have become very strict dieters (we've both lost over 50 lbs.!) and don't eat most of the stuff I love to cook - so I plan elaborate parties for all of our friends and make a giant buffet of everything I like to cook! It's been working out well and we have TONS of new friends!
