How to Make Eggplant Rollatini with prosciutto
- Peel and slice the eggplant in rounds,about an 1/8 of an inch thick.
Put them on a paper towel lined baking sheet and cover them with more towels.
Then place some empty pots,pans on top to squeeze out the water in the eggplant slices,about 10-15 minutes should do.
- While you are waiting for the eggplant to dry out,mix your filling:
32 ounces of Ricotta
3 large eggs
1/2 of the Romano cheese
1/4 pound of diced prosciutto
1/2 of the grated mozzarella cheese
all of the parsley,salt and pepper
Mix it well and refrigerate.
- Now you can mix the flour and bread crumbs,combine the milk and three remaining eggs and bread the eggplant slices.
Fry them in 350 degree oil,drain them on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
- Fill each eggplant slice with 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons of filling and place in a 3 quart baking dish.
Spoon some of the marinara on the bottom of the dish first then when it's full,cover with the remaining sauce,mozzarella and Romano cheeses.Bake covered in a 350 oven for 45 minutes.Remove from oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!! :)
