(2 votes)

1/4 cup olive oil
1 large globe eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
Filling:
1 cup fresh basil leaves
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper
1/2 cup shredded fontina cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Brush two baking pans with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and lay the eggplant slices in the pans in one layer. Brush the eggplant with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Meanwhile, make the filling by processing all of the filling ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Remove eggplant from oven and spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling onto each eggplant slice. Fold the sides over the filling and place the pockets, seam side down, on a greased shallow baking pan. Sprinkle Fontina cheese over the pockets and bake for 15 minutes.

Makes 12 pockets
