This Easy Aubergine Bake Recipe is not only super delicious but super easy to make. I find layering up bakes relaxing and what’s great is that you can get this ready in advance and then pop it in the oven when you are nearly ready to have your meal. It only takes 40 minutes in the oven.
What you will need is:
1 garlic clove
2 small or 1 large aubergine
1 ball of mozzarella cheese
8 pasta sheets
1 can tinned tomatoes or passata
A couple of sprigs of basil
Grated cheddar cheese
Crush the garlic clove and mix with the tinned tomatoes. Spread this as the first layer across your oven dish. Then place the pasta sheets, trying to close all the gaps as good as possible.
Tear the mozarella into chunks and place over the pasta sheets.
Place a layer of roughly 1cm thick slices of aubergine on top of the mozarella.
Next put another layer of the pasta and cover with the remaining tinned tomatoes. Spread evenly over the pasta.
Place the sliced mushrooms ontop of the tomatoes and cover with the second half of the mozzarella then sprinkle over the grated cheese. Season well with salt and pepper.
Cook in the middle of a pre heated oven on a medium heat for 40 minutes.
My top tip for this recipe is to get your ingredients prepared so that you can layer the dish together a bit easier. Crush the garlic, cut the mushrooms and aubergines and unwrap your mozzarella. Place all of these in individual bowls and then relax and enjoy building up this tasty bake.
