Grilled Eggplant, roasted Red Peppers & Ricotta Sandwich

It sounds Italian but my hubby says its purely "gringo". I guess he's right because Italians don't "do" sandwiches. Panini at best! Keep posted for panini recipes in the future.

1 medium eggplant (about 1 lb) , sliced into 1/4-in.-thick rounds
1 tablespoon(s) olive oil Kosher salt and pepper
1/4 cup(s) store-bought pesto
4  ciabatta or other rolls, split
1 cup(s) ricotta cheese
4 medium roasted red peppers, halved

1.) Heat grill to medium.
2.) Brush both sides of the eggplant with the oil and season with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper.
3.) Grill, covered, until the eggplant is slightly charred and tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
4.) Spread the pesto on the rolls and form sandwiches with the eggplant, ricotta and roasted peppers.
