Ricotta Stuffed Eggplant

This dish could easily be from your favorite Italian restaurant. I’d categorize it as a glorified casserole. A casserole because it can be baked ahead of time in a dish. However, glorified as the flavors outshine any noodle dish that your blue haired neighbor may have served at your pot luck block party.
