Method

Aubergine Lasagna is a community recipe submitted by AnLi and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Rinse aubergines, cut off a bit at either end. Cut into 1/2 cm slices. Put in a colander, strew with salt to extract excess moisture.
  • Put the slices on a baking sheet, bake in a hot (190°C) oven for 20 minutes until they have caught a bit of a tan.
  • In a lasagne dish: Start with tomato sauce, then layer the ingredients. Top layer should be tomato sauce. Carefully pour milk in along the sides (not on top of the tomato sauce). Finally sprinkle over the parmesan.
  • Bake in a 190-200°C oven for 40 minutes or so.

    • just made this tonight, and it was a bit success ... kids queuing up for second helpings. Next time I may make a bigger one!

    • Didn't add any extra salt like the lasagne part says because the aubergine already had a whole lot of salt on it, also didn't add extra garlic because it had enough in the sauce. Used three layers of lasagne with aubergine and ribbons of carrot and courgette. Turned out really lovely =]
