Melanzane alla griglia alla ricotta - or melanzane grigliate alla ricotta or melanzane alla griglia con ricotta (sorry - i don;t mean to be pedantic, but i imagine it's helpful to have the right spelling- we can't know how to spell all languages, so it's useful to have "editors" who can spell the various languages).

Good good, I have a mind to make this although....  instead I will use flat leaf parsley, I will put some grated parmesan in the ricotta mixture, and I will bake the eggplant once it is stuffed perhaps with tomato sauce.  All in all an excellent idea.
