Savory oven-fried eggplant stuffed with an herby parmesan and ricotta cheese filling, smothered with marinara sauce and baked to perfection. This Easy Eggplant Rollatini is the perfect meal for when you just have to enjoy a hearty Italian dinner. A perfect match for your favorite bottle of vino, you won’t believe how easy this dish is to make!
This is a slightly healthier twist on a traditional Italian eggplant rollatini dish. Instead of frying (because who wants to deal with that cleanup, anyway?), the eggplant pieces are baked until just crispy, then rolled up with a ricotta filling and topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Not only is this an amazingly delicious way to cook eggplant, it’s also ridiculously easy to make. I’m serious. These eggplant pieces are baked and not fried, so there’s no need to be intimidated by that part of the recipe. You put some breadcrumbs on them, put them on a baking sheet and let your oven do the rest!
