Serves 2 Prep: 20 min Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Aubergine 1 (400g)
Salt & pepper as required
Olive oil as required
Ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese) 200g
Egg 1
Basil leaves 3-4
Lemon zest 1
Parmigiano reggiano 4 tbsp
Tomato sauce (shop bought) 150g
Mozzarella cheese 1
Parsley as required

Method

1
Thinly slice the aubergine lengthways about 4-5 mm thick.
2
Place on an oven tray, season with salt & pepper and drizzle with 4 tbsp olive oil. Bake in a preheated oven 220C for 20 minutes.
3
In the meantime, put the ricotta cheese, egg, lemon zest, 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper and grated parmigiano reggiano in a bowl and mix well.
4
Allow the aubergines to cool then spread evenly with the mixture from Step 3. Roll upwards very gently.
5
Put half the tomato sauce on the base of an oven dish then place the aubergine rolls on top, seam side down so they stay rolled.
6
Pour over the remaining tomato sauce then top each aubergine roll with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Bake at 220C for 30 minutes.
7
Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley before serving and enjoy whilst hot.

Tips & Note

If you can't find ricotta, use cottage cheese. This has more moisture however, so the rolls might be a bit softer. Instead of baking the aubergine slices in the oven at Step 2, you could pan fry them.
