Sliced aubergines are coated in breadcrumbs, fried and then rolled with a cheesy mixture of Parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella, before being baked in a homemade tomato sauce. To save time, you can use ready-made tomato sauce, if you prefer. It's a hearty and delicious starter or main dish, which is perfect for dinner parties.
Here's a GLUTEN-FREE version: add a LOT of freshly grated parm or romano cheese to the egg mixture (so that it's thick enough to coat) and skip the breadcrumbs. Go right to the saute pan with the egg-cheese dipped slices. If you want to make it extra special, lay a slice of proscuitto (Italian Ham)on top of the ricotta cheese mixture before you roll it up!

presents very nicely. i did not fry it, or even coat it, just broiled it with some olive oil. turned out wonderful and light. used fire roasted tomato plus a jarred pasta sauce. still tasted wonderful! full of flavor a definit keeper. - 01 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband described this dish to me as a childhood favorite of his; I recreated it by experimenting until I came up with something as rave-worthy as he remembered. My recipe is almost identical to this one! This recipe is delicious and worth the effort. - 27 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
