eggplant rollatini

This is our Eggplant Rollatini from Everyday Food Light. After cooking through a number of recipes from this book I’m finding it really is hit and miss, but this dinner is a huge hit!
This is our first time making any sort of eggplant rollatini, so I’m not sure how the original dish is made, but I doubt we’d have it any other way than this. It’s absolutely delicious, probably one of our favourite Italian American dinners we’ve ever had! These look like huge heavy burritos but it's not a heavy dinner by any stretch. It's quite light, using light ricotta and light mozzarella and baked eggplant instead of noodles, I definitely think this is light without sacrificing flavour. We ended up doubling this recipe and freezing the second portion which worked out really well.
