  1. Cut each eggplant in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 inch thick shells. Reserve shells; chop pulp and reserve. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In small skillet heat oil; add onion, pepper, eggplant pulp and garlic and saute until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and stir in Ricotta cheese, then egg, bread crumbs and seasonings.
