3_172_eggplantrollups_ORIGINAL

 

Serves:  6

Ingredients
2 large eggplants, peeled and sliced lengthwise 1/2 inch thick
2-3 tbsp. water
2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 cloves garlic, chopped
8 oz. baby spinach
1 tbsp. no-salt seasoning, adjusted to taste
2 cups no salt added or low-sodium pasta sauce, divided
6 oz. non-dairy mozzarella-type cheese, divided

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a non-stick baking pan. Arrange eggplant in a single layer in the pan. Bake about 20 minutes or until eggplant is flexible enough to roll up easily. Set aside.
Heat 2 tablespoons water in a large pan, add the bell pepper, onion, celery, and garlic; sauté until just tender, adding more water if needed. Add the spinach and seasoning and cook until spinach is wilted.
Transfer to a mixing bowl. Mix in 2 to 3 tablespoons of the pasta sauce and all of the shredded cheese. Spread about 1/4 cup of the pasta sauce in a baking pan. Put some of the vegetable mixture on each eggplant slice, roll up and place in a pan. Pour the remaining sauce over the eggplant rolls. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until heated through.
