These Sicilian eggplant rolls are a typical Sunday dish, often presented as an appetizer or as a second course (following a tasty baked pasta!), but can be good for any important occasion. These Sicilian style involtini are a rather rich and full-bodied dish, with a filling that can be prepared in various ways: our recipe calls for ricotta cheese, pine nuts and lemon zest. Our recipe calls for grilled eggplants, but you can also deep fry them for a different texture (and more calories!).
