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!
