Today’s post is all about one of my favourite vegetarian dishes ever, I could honestly eat this everyday and never ever get bored. With this fact in mind it’s odd that I have never made this myself before. If you’re wondering why it’s because my Dad makes it so well, that I just request it each and every time I’m at home! Lazy much!
Anyway I picked up some aubergines the other day and decided to give it a go myself, and then obviously I had to share the results with you because that’s what we do over here isn’t it?!
600g tomato passata
400g mozzarella sliced
Here’s what you do.
Thinly slice the aubergines, then coat them in flour and egg and fry in a pan for about 5 minutes on each side.
Now literally layer your dish with tomato sauce, aubergine slices, mozzarella and basil leaves, repeat this pattern and finish with a later of sauce and sprinkle with the parmesan.
Next bake in the over at 200C for about 30 minutes. Tip – You want the sauce to be bubbling nicely.
We had this with some freshly baked bread, but it’s also just as good with salad or as a side to go with pasta.
One top tip is that it manages to taste just as good cold, so it’s perfect for lunchtime leftovers.

p.s. sorry about the lack of picture, but all the pictures I took looked very messy. I will update with a image if I can ever get a good photo!
