eggplant, peeled and cut lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 (14 ounce) jar
shredded mozzarella cheese
angel hair pasta
I didn't find this fast or easy as others said . I sweated the eggplant first . I also added roasted garlic and spinach to the ricotta mixture. It was fantastic.
This is a great recipe that has alot of room to add and play with.
very good recipe it is also good stuffed with meat using your favorite recipe for meatballs
I've made this twice and really enjoy it. I made a lighter version the second time though. Instead of using a whole egg and frying it, I used a couple of eggwhites mixed with a little water. I dipped that in bread brumbs and put them under the broiler about 5 minutes per side on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. It takes no extra time really. I also used part skim ricotta.
I didn't use the prosciutto. I added chopped spinach to the ricotta cheese instead.
This was wonderful! I am a huge eggplant rollatini fan but this was the first time I attempted it on my own and it turned out great - even my husband, who has never been an eggplant fan, loved it! The only change I made was to add some fresh basil to the ricotta. I also made my own basic sauce, lots of fresh basil and tomatoes.
This was great! Instead of proscuitto, I mixed some cooked sausage (which I took out of the casing and browned on the stove) with the ricotta. I also added parsley to the ricotta. Outstanding!
So great! I made it a point to "sweat" out the slices to rid the bitterness.
I can eat eggplant made this way. Even the kids ate it and liked it. I sweated it out with salt as suggested, added spinach, garlic S&P and nutmeg to the ricotta, had to make my own breadcrumbs and pasta sauce because i ran out. Kind of labor intensive though, not a great recipe for a weeknite without all the ingredients on hand premade. Probably took 1.5 hrs total for making 7 rolls. and you use more than 2 tbspn of EVOO to fry. Leftovers were good as well. had w/ brown rice. would make again for a weekend meal
