Rollatini (sometimes also spelled rolatini or rolletini) is an Italian-style dish (called rollatini di melanzane in faux Italian) that is usually made with thin slices of eggplants, which are dusted in wheat flour or lightly breaded and covered with ricotta and often other cheeses and seasonings, then rolled up and baked. Alternatively, veal, chicken, or fish may be used in place of the eggplant.[1][2]
