  3. Using paper towel, pat slices dry.

  4. Brush both sides of eggplant slices with olive oil and transfer back to the baking sheets in a single layer.

  4. Roll up prepared eggplant slices and place them seam-side down in baking dish, over the marinara sauce.

  5. Use any leftover cheese mixture to spoon around the eggplant rollups.
