Baked Eggplant Rolatini

Eggplant Rolatini

It’s healthy, it’s saucy, it’s creamy, it’s Eggplant Rolatini! Baked thin slices of eggplant, stuffed with my tofu ricotta with spinach, and baked in marinara sauce served with a side of pasta and vegan parm. Yum! This is a great combination of lasagna and eggplant parmesan, two of my favorites. It’s simple to make and only need a few things to make a meal for the whole family. I have a breaded version from last year, but this is a little healthier. I hope you enjoy it!
