Eggplant Lasagna Rollatini

This Lightened-up Eggplant Rollatini is a hearty and comforting dinner that takes all the flavor of the traditional dish, but makes it just a bit more healthy while still being a total celebration of summer. Sliced eggplant is baked, and then rolled up with a lasagna-like filling, and baked with marinara and a bit more cheese.

  • 2 medium eggplants
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 ounce container of ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 24- ounce jar marinara sauce
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • Fresh basil for garnish


  • Slice the ends off of the eggplant lengthwise, and then slice the remaining into 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with salt on both sides and set on a paper towel-lined sheet tray. Let it sit for 1 hour or so. Dab any moisture off of the eggplant with a paper towel.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Tranfer eggplant to a parchment lined baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping halfway through, until tender, but not mushy. Remove eggplant and let cool down slightly.
  • In a bowl, combine ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella, Italian seasoning, garlic, and salt.
  • Line 8" square baking dish (or similar size) with 1/2 cup of sauce and begin assembling rollatinis: place about 2 tablespoons (depending on size of your eggplant) of the cheese mixure in the middle. Gently roll and place into the baking dish and repeat until all is used.
  • Top with about 1 cup of sauce, and cover with remaining cheese, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until cheese is bubbling.
  • Garnish and serve hot with additional warmed marinara and fresh basil.
