I love to prepare Sunday night dinners this time of year. It’s one of the few nights that my three kids and I aren’t racing from cross country, to dance, to football practice, and we can actually sit down and eat together. Last week, I wanted something Cajun, yet comforting. I threw together this dish with some ingredients I had in my pantry and came out with this casserole. It’s perfect for fall and large dinners. Feel free to substitute chicken for the shrimp if you like.
I love eggplant parmesan, and this combination of eggplant, fennel and bell peppers is a delicious low carb meal. Instead of breading and frying the vegetables, you can lightly grill or saute them, layer with marinara, cheese and top with Italian style panko breadcrumbs. Vegetable Parmesan Casserole is true comfort food and is so filling all you need is a side salad or glass of red wine.
