Shop-bought pesto and tomato sauce make this aubergine parmigiana both quick and easy to make.

If you have more time, Gennaro Contaldo’s baked aubergine recipe is a must-make.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 small aubergines
  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 2 x 125g balls mozzarella, sliced
  • 350g jar chilli and tomato sauce
  • 50g ready-made fresh breadcrumbs
  • 50g grated vegetarian Parmesan

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Slice the aubergines lengthways into 1cm slices and brush with olive oil. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and cook the aubergine in batches for 2-3 minutes, turning once, until tender.
  2. Spread 1 side of the cooked aubergine slices with 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato pesto, then layer them up into 3 layers in a lightly greased ovenproof dish with mozzarella and the jar of chilli and tomato sauce.
  3. Mix together fresh breadcrumbs and Parmesan, then sprinkle over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes until bubbling and golden. Serve with a green salad.
