ingredients

directions

  • Spoon the ricotta into a fine strainer placed over a bowl in the refrigerator for several hours. Discard the excess liquid. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread thin coating of olive oil on 3-4 baking or cookie sheet pans, or reuse the same pan several times.
  • Put the flat end of the eggplant down onto the cutting board. Slice the eggplants lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices, to make about 15 slices. Beat 4 of the eggs. Add salt and pepper to season eggs. Coat each eggplant slice with flour, then dip into the beaten eggs, drain any excess egg mixture, then coat with bread crumbs and lay flat on baking sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • You may have to bake them in batches. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature.
  • Combine ricotta, remaining egg, garlic, basil, parsley, 3/4 of the mozzeralla cheese and 1/2 cup of the grated Romano or Parmesan in a bowl. Mix well. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Spoon 1 cup of tomato sauce onto the bottom of a small baking dish. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling onto the wide end of each piece of eggplant. Then, roll up each piece and place into the baking dish.
  • Top with remaining tomato sauce, mozzarella, and grated Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, until the tomato sauce is bubbling and the filling is hot. Let them rest for 15 minutes before serving.

    Love this recipe! I hadn't made this in years and needed this recipe as a refresher. DELISH!<br/>I did fry the eggplant though. My personal preference. <br/>Thanks for sharing!

    Excellent! We love eggplant rollatini anyways, but I usually fry it. Baking it makes the whole dish much lighter and less time consuming. Even the kids love it - yum!

    Made this exactly according to the recipe, and everyone loved it. As several people have mentioned, it is pretty messy and time-consuming, but definitely worth it!
