My husband and I got really in to this season of the Next Food Network Star. I think the new format made it more competitive and really enjoyable to watch. After a few weeks of watching, my interest was piqued most not by one of the contestants (although I did love Justin and was glad he won) but by a long-standing member of the network, Alton Brown. I started looking for some of his more unusual recipes and stumbled upon this one. Alton is known for taking everyday ingredients and using them in a surprising and thought-provoking way. This recipe takes eggplant, makes “pasta” out of it and then builds a whole dish around it. I couldn’t get over how delicious this was and my husband hasn’t stopped talking about it so it gets my stamp of approval! Click here to get the recipe and see how it’s made!
