Ingredients
 

  • 2 medium eggplant tops and bottoms removed, sliced lengthwise into four 1/4-inch-thick long slices each
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic  sliced
  • 2 cups crushed tomato
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil torn
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 1 small zucchini diced
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • ½ cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil chopped
  • 3 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese divided
  • 1 large egg
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Heat your oven to 450ºF.
  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Place eggplant slices in a single layer on the baking sheet and lightly spray the tops with cooking spray.
  • Bake the eggplant, flipping them over once, until they are golden brown, which should take about 10 minutes on each side.
  • Take the eggplant out of the oven and put them aside.

For the Sauce:

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add sliced garlic and cook until it starts to turn brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Mix in the crushed tomatoes, reduce the heat to low.
  • Add torn basil leaves, mix well, and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Cover the saucepan, take it off the heat, and set it aside.

For the Filling:

  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and zucchini; cook until the onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Mix in chopped garlic and cook for another minute, then transfer the mixture to a small bowl to cool down.
  • In another small bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, parsley, chopped basil, and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  • Add the cooled onion mixture to the ricotta mixture and stir to combine.
  • Mix in the egg, salt, and pepper.

For the Rollatini:

  • Lower the oven temperature to 400ºF.
  • Spread 3 tablespoons of the sauce on the bottom of an 8- X 8-inch baking dish, covering it completely.
  • On a clean cutting board, lay out a slice of eggplant.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of the filling at the narrower end of the eggplant slice and roll it up.
  • Place the rolled eggplant, seam side-down, in the baking dish. Repeat with all eggplant slices.
  • Pour the remaining sauce and sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of Parmesan over the rolled eggplants.
  • Bake until the sauce is bubbling, about 10 to 15 minutes.
