1/2 Photos of Gorgonzola Stuffed Eggplant Rolls With Mushroom Tomato Sauce
A vegetarian dish that can easily have meat added to it like ground, Italian sausage or veal. Very easy to make and a healthy meal that will fill you up. It is best to start the sauce and let it simmer while you prepare the rest of the dish. Some grilled chiabata bread goes along great for soaking up some of the sauce. And a glass of wine!
