  • Lay eggplant slices on flat surface and place one scoop of spinach mix in center of eggplant slice, and roll each slice.
  • On baking dish, scoop one ounce of marinara, then lay rollatini (seam side down) onto sauce. Cover with remaining marinara and any remaining mozzarella, and parmesan.
  • Bake at 350 degree for 3-4 minutes, to soften eggplant and melt cheese.
