Eggplant Rollatini

My dear husband don't eat eggplant like stuffed or simple Indian curry style, only he prefers as baigan bhartha or in Italian dishes like Parmesan Sandwich or this way or on top of pizza. He wants everything perfect  and he is so good in tasting the food, if he says just put a dash of lime juice or salt and then dish become perfect. So he was telling me to make this dish for so long, so one week I planned ahead and brought everything to make this dish over weekend. Well as a perfectionist he has to cut those eggplant in same size so only for that purpose we have food slicer , so he cut it and we both made this dish together.  This is a very easy and filling dish, first I was thinking to make pasta on side but when we sliced it ,  I saw enough to feed us so didn't bother to make it and just enjoy as it is with a glass of wine.

Ingredients :

1 big purple eggplant, thinly sliced.
Eggplant Slicer

1 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 grated carrot
2 tbsp. toasted pine nuts
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. Italian seasoning or any other dried Italian herbs
1 cup or as needed Marinara sauce
few red pepper flakes


Sliced the eggplant in similar size.
put it in salted water till you grill them.
Grill all the slices so it gets tender, you don't have to grill it too much.
In a bowl , add ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, carrot, pine nuts, salt and pepper, seasoning, red pepper flakes and mix it.

Preheat the oven at 375 F.
In a baking dish spread marinara sauce in one single layer.
Now take one grilled slice and put a big tablespoon of stuffing in one side of the eggplant.
Roll it till end and arrange it in baking dish.
Finish all and put them in baking dish.

If you have leftover stuffing putting on top of it , don't waste it.
Spread sauce all over eggplant and then spread cheese on it.

Bake it in the oven till cheese melted from inside and outside for around 15-20 minutes, and check in between too.

Take it out from the oven, leave it outside for 5 minutes because inside stuffing is very hot.
Serve it in a plate and enjoy with a glass of wine or side of salad or Garlic Bread Sticks.
