Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place eggplant on a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
Add pine nuts to a food processor and process until finely ground but not a paste. Transfer to a large bowl.
Fold in garlic, breadcrumbs, flour, ricotta, mushrooms, spinach and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
Add roasted eggplant to the food processor and pulse until well chopped but there is still some texture (do not completely purée).
Add to breadcrumb mixture and mix well.
Add egg and combine.
Form into 16 meatballs and place on a foil lined sheet pan. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, heat sauce in a small saucepan.
Serve meatballs with a generous amount of sauce.
