    Ingredients:

    Serves: 5

    Yield:

    rolls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Trim tops and bottoms from eggplant. Cut each into 6 lenghtwise slices, about 1/2 inch thick. Spread slices onto 2 large cookie sheets lined with paper towels. Sprinkle slices with 1/4 teaspoons salt, then turn over and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoons more salt. Let stand 15 minutes, flipping slices halfway.
    2. 2
      Heat grill, grill pan, or saute pan to medium-high heat. Quickly rinse eggplant slices under running water;pat dry. Spray both sides with nonstick cooking spray. Grill or cook slices until soft, about 4 minutes on each side. Return slices (do not overlap) to large cookie sheets (without paper towels).
    3. 3
      Heat oven to 350 degrees and coat a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together 3/4 cup of the mozzarella, the ricotta, egg yolk, Italian seasoning and pepper. Stir until well combined.
    4. 4
      Divide red pepper pieces evenly among eggplant slices, placing them going across the width on the wider end of each slice. Top each pepper with a heaping tablespoon of cheese filling. Place 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce on the bottom of the prepared dish. Roll up eggplant slices starting at the wide end and enclosing filling. Place in dish. Top with remaining 1 cup marinara sauce, remaining 3/4 cup mozzarella and the grated Parmesan cheese.
    5. 5
      Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Add salt to taste.

      I didn't think the work required to make this dish was worth the final product. It's an interesting and creative vegetarian dish, and the flavor was ok, but not worth all the effort.

      I selected this recipe because I didn't have a lot of time to dedicate in the kitchen yesterday. I followed the directions exactly and it came out wonderfully delicious and aesthetically pleasing. I don't like to "tamper" with recipes the first time I try them. In this case I will continue not to change a thing. And who needs the breading and other added calories? This was simply yummy! I used my deli knife that I ordered from an infomercial. You set the desired width that you want to slice and it cuts it perfectly. It really came in handy to slice the eggplant slices exactly to 1/2 inch thick. Thank you cookiedog! Well done!
