Directions

Heat grill pan over high heat until hot.

Cut eggplant lengthwise into 8 (1/3-inch-thick) slices, discarding ends. Brush both sides of slices with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.

Grill slices in batches, turning over once, until golden brown and tender, about 4 minutes, then transfer to a tray.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Assemble eggplant rolls:
Stir together cheeses (reserve some of parmesan for topping), turkey, spinach, italian seasoning, pepper, and salt. Divide cheese mixture among slices (3 to 4 tablespoons per slice), leaving an 1/8-inch border along edge. Roll up each slice, beginning with a short end, and top rolls with sauce, slice of mozzarella, and dusting of parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted and golden and sauce is bubbling, 30 minutes.
