This is a great recipe for eggplant lovers!! Alternatively, veal, chicken, or fish may be used in place of the eggplant.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This hearty eggplant dinner is filled with great Italian flavor. It takes a few minutes to fry the slices of eggplant, but once that's done it's easy to assemble. We love the mix of cheese in the filling. Seasoned perfectly with oregano, garlic, and black pepper once baked it is nice and creamy. Prepare this Italian dinner next time you have a vegetarian friend coming for dinner. Everyone will be happy to enjoy this eggplant rollatini. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
