  • Lightly cook for around 5 minutes (it will continue to cook in the oven) then mix in the tomato sauce and tomato puree.
  • Wash and slice the aubergine.
  • Grease a large baking dish with spray oil/ oil (or butter) and layer with half the aubergine slices (cut some of the slices in half to fit in between the larger slices).
