The richness of the roasted eggplant is nicely off-set by the mint flavored ricotta. This is also great with a drizzle of olive oil.

This is how to do it:

Three small eggplants halved and lightly coated with olive oil, place them on a sheet pan and roast at 400  until brown and toasty. Cool down to room temp.

Chopped a small bunch of fresh mint and mix with 2 cups ricotta. Place small dollops of the mint ricotta on each eggplant half & drizzle with olive oil. The way to eat this is to scrap the eggplant out of it skin along with the ricotta. Discard the skin.
