Eggplant needs to get sliced.

Then salted and rested to remove water, then cooked in a skillet for a couple minutes until tender.

Then put some marinara in a baking dish and start filling rolls of eggplant

Once all the rolls are rolled and stuffed in the dish, top with more marinara and mozzarella. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.

Looks delicious but my kids just turn their noses just knowing it's eggplant.

I know kids don't want to eat eggplant usually, maybe you could trick them into trying cause it looks like lasagne!😁

That is a great dish! I think I can do that. Marinara I do not now but I could make some tomato sauce with tomatosauce and cream.

This dish with a creamy tomato sauce would be a killer meal.

I am gonna cook it tonight. Now shopping. My wife does not like cheese but melted it is ok. Will make picture.
