Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Arrange the aubergine slices on a baking sheet, brush with oil and season well. Grill for 2-3 mins each side until golden brown, set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a saucepan. Fry the garlic for 1 min then pour in the passata. Simmer for 10 mins with the oregano, sugar and vinegar, then season and stir in the basil.
  3. Assemble the lasagne in a roughly A4-sized baking dish. Spread a few tbsp of the tomato sauce over the base of the dish, followed by a layer of aubergine. Scatter over some Parmesan and mozzarella, then cover with a layer of lasagne. Repeat, finishing with a topping of Parmesan and mozzarella, and sprinkle on the breadcrumbs.
  4. Allow to cool at this point for freezing, or heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and cook the lasagne for 25-30 mins until golden and bubbling.

I loved the taste of this, but did find it rather time consuming grilling all of the aubergine slices! I had a bit of trouble with the thinner ones as they went burnt and crispy especially on the edges, so I know to cut them a little thicker next time. The sauce was really nice. I didn't bother with breadcrumbs, but used an extra ball of mozzarella on the top instead, lovely!

Made this last night and it turned out to be very successful. My boyfriend and I polished off most of the dish in one sitting and I just now had the leftovers for dinner. I prepared the aubergine on a griddle instead of in the oven, which did make it more time-consuming to prepare, but the result was very scrummy. I will definitely be making this dish many more times. Next time I might replace one of the lasagne layers with an extra layer of aubergine as I love its flavour.

Really delicious. Great easy to make!
I split the recipe between 2 dishes, one for dinner for 2 tonight and 1 for 4 to go in the freezer. I feel this can feed 6 easily maybe more if you make a salad to go with it.

This is genuinely a five star recipe. The pasta makes for a lovely thick sauce. I double the garlic, only needed two aubergines as the ones I had we're huge. Seems a bit of a simple recipe but the sauce really makes it.

This is a great recipe! Me and my boyfriend cooked it together with no problems and no stress and it tasted amazing! However we used 2 large aubergines and 2x 125g balls of mozarella, I can't imagine 1 would have been enough.

I fell in love with Melanzane Parmigiana while on holiday in Italy so finding a recipe that turned it from a starter into a main course by making it into lasagne has been fantastic. Delicious!
