Eggplant & 3-cheese stack

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°-190°C fan forced (200°-210°C normal).
  • Evenly slice the eggplant lengthways and place in a heavy-bottomed oven tray. Then sprinkle with seasonings and a little oil and cook in the oven (or on a preheated ridged grill or BBQ) until brown and fairly tender.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently saute the garlic and onion until tender. Add the tomatoes with 1 cup stock, seasonings and the sugar. Mix well and gently cook until thick and fragrant, adding a little more stock if needed. Then stir in 1 tbsp chopped basil and taste for seasoning.
  • While the sauce is cooking, combine the ricotta and goat's cheese with the remaining basil, the parsley and seasonings until smooth.
  • Evenly spread the cheese mixture on the eggplant slices and layer in 4-6 stacks. Then carefully place on a lightly oiled baking tray, spoon the sauce on top and sprinkle with a generous amount of parmesan. Cook in the oven for about 10-15 mins until hot and bubbling.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
