Spicy Chicken & Eggplant Roll Ups

Eggplant is one of the many tropical vegetables we eat back in our tropical island of Saipan. I've always liked this vegetable and looking for other ways to cook it. I found out that eggplants may be substituted for lasagna noodles and therefore I've made this into a roll up bake. I found out that eggplant and cheese and spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce goes together so well! That's my "treo" (eggplant, mozzarella & spaghetti sauce) Try this awesome, wonderful, colorful, tangy, cheezy, healthy roll ups! They are AWESOME!
