      • 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
      • 2 eggs
      • 8 oz package of Italian Blend grated cheese

      Peel and thin slice eggplant lengthwise. Lay on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Drizzle with Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad dressing or Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Roast in oven for 20 min.
      Thin slice zucchini lengthwise and steam until almost done. Steam Zucchini (or roast if you like, but I did not have an extra pan). Remove eggplant from oven when done and let cool for 5-10 min.

      Blend 15 oz Ricotta Cheese with 2 eggs and 3/4 package of Italian grated cheese.
