This vegetarian dish consists of three different cheeses giving it a creamy, delicious flavour.

I have served it with polenta and you could use rice, or even boiled potatoes instead.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4-5 servings

Ingredients
Olive oil spray
1 large eggplant or 2 small
480g fresh ricotta
2 tsp dried basil, or cup fresh chopped
1 cup grated Parmesan
1 550g Primavera Pasta Sauce
cup grated mozzarella
Cooked polenta (optional) to serve

Method
Preheat the oven to 190C. Spray 2 large baking trays with olive oil spray to lightly grease, or use baking paper.

Cut the eggplant into about sixteen 1 cm thick slices lengthways.

Arrange the eggplant, in a single layer, on the prepared trays. Lightly spray with olive oil spray.

Meanwhile, place the drained ricotta, basil (I had to use dried as worms had eaten my home grown, however I think it would be nicer with fresh basil) and of the Parmesan in a medium bowl, and stir untill it is well combined.
Season with a bit of chilli powder or paste, and salt & pepper to taste.

Meanwhile start getting the polenta ready to cook, as per packet instructions, only using stock instead of water.

Roll up firmly to enclose filling. The ends need not be closed as ricotta mix is quite dry.
