Eggplant Rollatini with Spinach and Artichoke

Another winner from Gia Russa!

2 medium eggplants

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 large egg

1 cup Gia Russa ricotta cheese

1/2 cup Gia Russa Romano cheese, plus more for serving

1 (10 oz.) package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 tsp. Gia Russa chopped garlic

1/2 cup Gia Russa Artichoke

Bruschetta

1 jar Gia Russa Tomato Basil Sauce

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400º.

Cut the 2 ends off the eggplants. Cut the eggplants lengthwise, into 1/4-inch thick slices and sprinkle with salt. Set aside for about 10 to 15 minutes; pat dry with paper towels. Season the eggplant with more salt and pepper. Arrange on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Cover tightly with foil and bake until eggplant is tender and pliable but not fully cooked, about

Meanwhile, mix together egg, ricotta, Romano cheese, spinach, garlic and artichoke bruschetta. Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of cheese mixture onto each slice of

eggplant. Roll up slices and arrange them seam-side-down in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish coated with 1/3 of the jar of sauce. Top with remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese. Cover and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until eggplant is tender. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
