Directions:
1.) Sprinkle both sides of the eggplant with the salt; place on a large baking sheet and let stand 30 minutes

2.) Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray

3.) Pat the salted eggplant dry with paper towels. Rinse and dry the baking sheet. Spray both sides of the eggplant with nonstick spray; place on the baking sheet. Bake until the eggplant softens, about 20 minutes. Let the eggplant cool on the baking sheet, about 15 minutes.

5.) Pour the marinara sauce over the rolls and bake until the rolls are heated through and the sauce is bubbly, about 25 minutes.
