Nik’s Eggplant Parmesan Casserole

So I had all this stuff I had to use up. Isn’t that how the best dishes are made? The challenge: to use up ¾ of an eggplant I had along with an entire roasted spaghetti squash. To be fair, I didn’t really have a great plan for either when I bought them. They both just looked so gorgeous, sitting …
