Cheesy Eggplant Rolls

Summertime has arrived and so has the heat………..

 Eggplant rolls are a perfect compromise on a light Italian dinner.

What you will need:

1 eggplant

Part-skim low-fat ricotta

1 egg white

fresh basil

marinara sauce

mozzarella cheese (optional)

First start by peeling the eggplant and slicing thinly, place on a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the eggplant is baked.

Pull the eggplant out and let cool for another 20 minutes. In a separate bowl pour in the ricotta, egg white and fresh diced basil and mix well. Place a spoonful of the ricotta onto each eggplant and roll. Place the eggplant in a baking dish and top with the marinara sauce along with the (optional) mozzarella cheese,  bake once again for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

*In the photo above you will notice I made half eggplant rolls and half lasagna rolls with whole wheat pasta. My husband likes to have options, he loved them both.

Eggplant rolls make a perfect meatless meal, this is what we ate for meatless monday, what will you eat?
