Bab's Turkey Mushroom Lasagna Rolls

Rating: Unrated
A short ingredient list makes this a weeknight possibility. It works great at potlucks, card parties or big family gatherings. What I love about it is that everyone has an individual serving and service is simple. Toss up a salad and dinner is done! Servings can vary depending on how hungry everyone is. Kids usually eat one and hungry husbands can easily eat two. You be your own family's judge. Rest assured everyone will love these.

Eggplant Meatballs

Rating: Unrated
Yes, I made eggplant meatballs. If you know me, you know I love eggplant! I also love meatballs. Hence, I decided to make two of my favorites together, and it is delicious. I used ground turkey and almond meal, but I am giving you alternative suggestions below. This is a great paleo recipe and very addictive. I like using an ice cream scoop so they are all the same size! Perfect for entertaining. Yummy!
