Tested and Tasted: Crispy Eggplant with Pesto Fettucine

Tested and Tasted: Crispy Eggplant with Pesto Fettucine

To kick off the new recipe series we’re doing over here (we being my boyfriend, Eli, and I), we decided there was no better place to start than with dinner.  First, let me preface this with the fact that we are completely, terribly, and utterly incapable of feeding ourselves with wholesome homemade food, or even the food of non-wholesome varieties.  I kid you not.  If you could only take a peek into our fridge right now my point would be more than proven.  There are some apple slices in personal sized packs, some go-gurt, and then some leftover stuff from the very dinner you see here.  Oh, and a can of pears.  Get my point?  What I am trying to say is, we aren’t cookers over here, we mostly eat out and every once in a while we put the work in to unwrap something frozen and put it in oven.  The only time you can ever expect there to be an ounce of respectable food over here is every few weekend mornings when Eli gets the inkling to make banana pancakes.  (And yes, banana pancakes are absolutely respectable food.) That being said, Eli is actually pretty good at cooking and I am VERY good at eating, we just suck at a little thing called preparedness.  Where there is one, there are more, and I figure some of you out there reading OTK have the same kind of struggles, or maybe you don’t but just can’t decide what it is that you should make tonight.  Never fear my friends!  We thought it would be a good idea to share...
