  • While sauce is cooking, prick eggplants in several places with a fork. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil, and add eggplants. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until eggplants are tender.

  • Drain eggplants, and place one on each of 4 plates. Slit open eggplants, and spoon some tomato sauce inside each one. Garnish each plate with a spoonful of ricotta and a sprig of thyme.
