According to Wikipedia; Rollatini (sometimes also spelled rollatini or rolletini or Involtini) is an Italian-style dish that is usually made with thin slices of eggplant, 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. I prefer eggplants because it’s my favorite vegetable.

Broccoli is a super-food just like kale, a super antioxidant! Broccoli has vitamins K and C, it is a good source of folate, and also provides potassium and fiber. I know many people don’t like it, especially kids. I remember when my daughter Nina was 8 months old, she loved broccoli! However, she stopped eating it after turning two. Well, you know what, I decided to incorporate it into her favorite cheese pasta, and ever since all our kids ask for this dish at least once a week. We even used that sauce on our homemade pizza once. Wow! Usually, we have leftovers after a pizza night, but that night there was nothing left!
