What’s the serving size?

Serves 8


What do I need?

  • 3 large eggplants, sliced into 1 centimetre rounds
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ bunch fresh basil, leaves picked, stalks finely chopped
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 2 x 400g cans whole tomatoes
  • 50g unsalted butter, plus extra to grease
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 800ml milk
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 250g instant lasagne sheets
  • 125g mozzarella, sliced

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Place eggplant in a single layer on two baking trays lined with baking paper. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, season and scatter over oregano. Roast for 35-40 minutes until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the sauce, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic and basil stalks for 1 minute or until fragrant and then add the red wine. Increase the heat to high and bring to the boil. Cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly reduced. Add the tomatoes and return to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in ¾ of the basil leaves, tearing any large leaves. Remove from the heat and set aside. Squash the tomatoes with a fork.
  3. To make the béchamel sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes until you have a thick paste. Gradually add milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking occasionally, for 10 minutes or until thick and creamy. Stir through ¾ of the parmesan. Season.
  4. Grease a 2.6 litre ovenproof dish. Lay one-third eggplant and tomato sauce over the base, then cover with lasagne sheets and one-third béchamel, then another layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat the layers twice more, finishing with a final béchamel layer. Sprinkle over the remaining parmesan and dot with mozzarella. Scatter with basil leaves, then bake for 40-45 minutes until bubbling, golden and cooked through.
