The easy bit

  1. Thinly slice the aubergine lengthwise into six 5 mm-thick slices.

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan or grill plate and cook aubergine on both sides until tender and brown.
  4. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  5. Mix ricotta and basil together in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Divide the ricotta mixture evenly among aubergine slices and roll to enclose.
