Eggplant Rollatini - A delightful vegetarian entree featuring grilled eggplant rolled around a ricotta mozzarella filling

Eggplant Rollatini

Grilled eggplant slices wrapped around a ricotta mozzarella filling and baked topped with marinara make for a lovely meatless meal!



  1. Lay eggplant slices out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and let sit for about 15 minutes to draw out moisture.
  2. Rinse off eggplant and pat dry. Heat grill pan or outdoor grill. Brush eggplant with olive oil and grill till tender. Let cool slightly.
  3. Mix together egg, ricotta, cheeses, basil, salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat oven to 375ยบ.
  5. Grease 8 x8 pan. Spoon some marinara over the bottom of the pan, reserving some to top eggplant.
  6. Spoon about a tablespoon of ricotta filling on small end of each eggplant slice. Roll up and place seam-side down in the pan. Top with remaining marinara and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes, or till hot. Sprinkle with chopped basil or garnish with sprigs of basil to serve.
