8 slices of grilled eggplant
8 thin slices of mozzarella
1 bunch swiss chards, roughly chopped
1/4 cup of dry white wine
2 cups of Italian San Marzano tomatoes, crushed

Line meat slices with eggplant and mozzarella, roll and secure with a toothpick or butchers' string. Dredge in flour.
In a large and deep non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, warm 2-3 tbsp of Italian extra virgin olive oil, sear meat rolls until golden all around. Then add wine and let alcohol evaporate.
Add the crushed tomatoes, season with salt and lower heat to low and cover skillet with a lid. Cook for about 10 minutes.
Add swiss chards, stir well to combine and cook until you reach your desired doneness.

- You can use beef tenderloin but you have to cook rolls longer, before adding the swiss chards.
