Eggplant & 3-Cheese Lasagne

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Place the eggplant in an oven tray, spray with oil and cook in the oven until tender.
  • To make the mornay sauce, gently melt the butter in a pot. Add the flour, mix well and cook for a few minutes, regularly stirring.
  • Then add the hot milk all at once and whisk well. Gently cook for about 5-10 mins until thickened.
  • Add the grated cheese and seasonings. Whisk and briefly cook.
  • Spoon half of the mornay sauce into the base of a square or rectangle gratin dish (casserole). Top with a layer of lasagne sheets, some tomato sauce and a decent layer of eggplant. Then sprinkle with the goat's cheese, basil, more tomato sauce, another layer of lasagne sheets and the remaining mornay sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan and cook in the oven for about 30 mins until golden and bubbling. (If browning too much, cover with kitchen foil.)
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
