Eggplant Rollatini

Oxmoor House
Prep: 14 minutes; Cook: 45 minutes

1 small eggplant (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut lengthwise into 6 (1/4-inch-thick) slices
Cooking spray
3/4 cup tomato-and-basil pasta sauce, divided
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 small garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

3. Reduce oven temperature to 400°.

4. Spread 1/4 cup pasta sauce in bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish.
