DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the griller.
  • Combine the lemon juice and olive oil and brush it on the eggplant slices.
  • Lay them in a single layer on a nonstick baking tray and grill both sides for about 3 minutes each or until golden brown.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
  • In a bowl combine the tomato puree, tomatoes, oregano, basil, cayenne pepper and garlic.
  • In another bowl combine the parmesan and breadcrumbs.
  • Spoon one third of the tomato mixture into the base of a lasagne or casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle with one third of the breadcrumb mixture and cover with a layer of eggplant.
  • Spread half the ricotta cheese over the eggplant and continue to layer in the same order, ending with the breadcrumb mixture (in my case hopefully).
  • Scatter the mozzarella cheese over the top and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
  • Serve with salad and crusty bread.
