You're going to love this comforting Italian dinner! Little Italy Eggplant Rollatini is our version of a restaurant favorite. It's basically an eggplant roll-up that's filled with lots of creamy cheese and covered in spaghetti sauce. Once your family gets a taste, they're going to ask for it again and again!  

What You'll Need:
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 eggplant, peeled and cut lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick slices (about 16 slices total)
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 1 (32-ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place eggs in a shallow dish; beat well. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish.
     
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Dip eggplant slices in egg then coat completely with bread crumbs. Place coated eggplant slices in skillet a few at a time and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden, adding more oil as needed. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
     
  3. Pour 1 cup spaghetti sauce over the bottom of a 9- x 13-inch baking dish. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.
     
  4. Place eggplant on a work surface and spread 1/4 cup ricotta cheese mixture over the top of each. Sprinkle evenly with basil. Roll up jelly roll fashion and place seam-side down in baking dish. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce over eggplant rolls and top with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
     
  5. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
Notes

Top with grated Parmesan cheese before serving, if desired.
