My hubby is a meat lover, but he fell in LOVE with this dish!! He didn’t even realized if it was a vegetarian dish.. lol!

If you want to make it as a vegan, super easy to fix by using vegan ricotta and vegan cheese! Hopefully you give this recipe a try one day!!

Enjoy~

Hi there 🙂 I tried to figure out the calories for you 🙂 From what I found out of using Calorie King as my main source and choosing the generic option the calorie count comes to 942.5 calories a serve, the whole dish is about 1885 calories total. If you use lower fat ingredients for the ricotta and mozzarella then you can lower it some if you’re watching your calorie intake like I am. Hope that helps 🙂

I LOVE THE EGGPLANT ROLLATINI RECIPE…BUT I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS….

1) I WAS WONDERING….INSTEAD OF RED MARINARA SAUCE, CAN WE USE A WHITE SAUCE INSTEAD???

DUE TO ME BEING ALLERGIC TO TOMATOES AND RED SAUCE AND NORMALLY EGGS……BUT 1 EGG WILL NOT HURT ME….
THANK YOU….AND GOD BLESS YOUR HEALTHY HANDS..FOR THINKING OF ALL OF YOUR RECIPES..

This was pretty good, but I doubt I’ll make it again because eggplant parmigiana blows this away, IMO. I definitely recommend cutting the slices no less than 1/2″ thick, otherwise they tend to tear when you remove them from the baking sheet. I also cut the salt in half for the filling, and used less on the eggplant and it was almost-but-not-quite too salty. On the plus side, these are a lot less work than eggplant parmigiana.

Of course eggplant parmesan blows this recipe away, but it’s a healthier which is why it’s listed as a HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE.

why the lemon zest? doesn’t it make it bitter?

It will give refreshing lemony flavor into it. If you don’t like them, you can omit for your taste. 🙂

Lemon zest is not bitter unless you grate down into to the pith. Thats the white spongy part between the yellow rind and the skin that cover the juice pods. Just grate 2-3 times and turn the lemon to keep grating. Dont grate the same spot twice.

I followed this recipe exactly, except used less salt and squeezed a few drops of the lemon juice. Figured the marinara sauce and cheese had enough salt….it came out delicious! Even my 9 year old grand-daughter loved it! It was so easy and quick. To me it is so much easier and healthier than Eggplant Parmesan, which I love and just as good. This will be a regular meal in our household. Next time I will use lower fat cheeses and add spinach, mushrooms and/or ground turkey. Thank you for a beautiful recipe.

Do you think you could make it and before baking freeze it or refrigerate it then bake it the next day? Or would that possibly cause an illness with the egg and cheese? I am going away and wanted to make this a day before then be able to just bake it when we arrive at the home the next day.

Hi Danica,
You can wrap it tightly after arrange the dish and refrigerate up to 2 days or freeze up to 1 month (If frozen, the dish must be thawed completely in the refrigerator, about 24 hours). Hope this helps!

Thought this was delicious and satisfying, didn’t miss the meat. Lemon zest was the key ingredient for me. Only used about 4 oz mozerella and it was perfect. Do think it is important to use a high quality spaghetti sauce such as Victoria’s. Will cut back on the salt next time and choose light ricotta. Thanks for sharing!

I love your recipes but this one has a deep flaw. Lemon zest just does not blend with ANY of the other ingredients. It’s like adding zest to eggplant parm. It’s a non-starter. I used it in my recipe/prep and “something” just wasn’t right. Bitterness that argued with the ricotta and the other cheese. It was the zest. To each….

Hi Brian,
you can leave out the lemon zest if you don’t like the flavor with the dish. Some says actually lemon zest is the best part, but it’s really personal taste preference! 😉

I loved the lemon zest and my husband particularly liked the addition. I made it with part skim mozzarella and ricotta. My calculations were that the entire dish was about 515 calories. If I’m wrong, don’t tell me!

You said the whole dish is about 1885 calories. In that case if it feeds four there is only 471 calories per serving. We call this Eggplant Milano have been making for sometime now. For the person asking about a good Marinara Sauce Pastene has one its label Pastene – Chateau’s Marinara Sauce. Taste homemade.

If you score where you want to cut the eggplant before slicing it makes it easier to get the right size. It may help lying it on its side too instead of slicing top to bottom. I cant wait to make this. Looks very good!
