Another recipe featured by “La cucina del Gusto – Sorrento cooking school”: Rolled Egg Plant, to make this Easter Sunday truly memorable with chef Carmen’s recipes!

Rolled Eggplants


  • 1 sliced Eggplant
  • fresh cherry tomato sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese – cubed
  • basil
  • grated parmesan
  • Peanut or canola oil

Remove the ends and peel the eggplant.  Soak in water and rock salt for about an hour to eliminate the bitterness.  Place on paper towels.
Fry gently until browned in peanut oil and then drain on absorbent paper.
Put a spoon of tomato sauce on the bottom of an oven-proof dish.  Place a slice of eggplant on work surface.  Next, add a piece of basil and a cube of mozzarella cheese at one end.  Top with parmesan.  Roll eggplant with basil and cheese.  Place into the oven-proof dish and add the remaining tomato sauce and top with grated parmesan.
Bake for approx. 10 minutes at 350 F.

Can substitute pumpkin for eggplant.
Slice eggplant and grill until soft.
Use goat or gorgonzola cheese, walnuts or hazelnuts, sage, and butter.
