chopped fresh basil
toasted pine nuts
salt and pepper to taste
medium eggplants, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch
grated Parmesan cheese
I changed this a bit by putting in a 13 x 9 and topping with spag. sauce and mozzerella and baking for 35 min. at 350 deg. WOW was this awsome!!
This appetizer turned out alright. I think it would help if the recipe was a bit more specific on how to put the rollatis together. The process for me was quite messy and annoying. The actual taste was very rich, so if you're looking for a neutral appetizer...this isn't it!
I changed this quite a bit. Before I cooked the eggplant I laid out the slices on paper towels and sprinkled them with some salt, to help release moisture, for a few minutes. After they were cooked, I laid a piece of prosciutto on it, then the ricotta mixture (to which I added some parmesan and mozzarella), then rolled it up and secured it with a toothpick. I put them on a platter with a small bowl of the tomato sauce in the middle. This way, it was a neat appetizer and people could dip or spoon the tomato sauce on if they wanted it.
It turned out very tasty and I will probably make it again with the same adjustments.
This recipe is fabulous! I use pre-breaded eggplant cutlets form the local Italian store which cuts the difficulty to almost nothing. You won't be disappointed and neither will your guests!
These are a nice change from pasta but might be laking something. I added spinach to the filling which did help. I will make this again but probably add some garlic to the filling and maybe more herbs.
I made the eggplant ahead of time so it was cool enough to roll up. Everyone loved it.
flavor was good but i found these hard to roll up and not as pretty as i wanted them to be. added some ital seasoning to the ricotta- would be a good veggie lasagna or side dish
I was testing this appetizer which i plan to serve on chirstmas day.. i basically added more than what is in the original recipe... i added italian herbs and also chicken strip which is really good especially for the meat lovers.... my hubby suggested to not forget this on christmas day....with two thumbs up
