Courgette and aubergine parmigiana HERO

Be creative with aubergine and try using them in this gorgeous Italian bake. Layer them with delicate courgettes, velvety mozzarella cheese and tasty Parmesan cheese. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200˚C, fan 180˚C.
  2. Coat the aubergine and courgette slices in olive oil. Heat a griddle pan and sear the slices for 3-4 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate and repeat until all the slices are griddled.
  3. Add the onion to the griddle pan and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring until it has softened. Meanwhile heat the chopped tomatoes and garlic in a small pan. Add the onion and let it bubble for a few minutes.
  4. Spoon a little tomato sauce into the base of a large ovenproof dish. Then layer with vegetables, sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan, then bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top.
