Famous veggie dish from Italy

Eggplant ricotta involtini is famous Italian dish so of course it is bursting with taste of Mediterranean. Especially if it is done with homemade tomato sauce and adding just fresh basil on top makes such a different in taste.

And cheese…should I even talk about creamy ricotta from the inside and melted cheese on top?!
