Number of Servings: 1

1 Aubergine
2 Courgettes
Salt and pepper
900 Gram(s) Fresh ripe tomatoes
1 Onion
1 Garlic clove
6 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
1 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
1 Handful torn fresh basil
2 Tablespoon(s) Plain white unbleached flour
4 Eggs
3 Tablespoon(s) Freshly grated parmesan
cheese + extra to
sprinkle on top
2 175 g packet mozzarella
Thinly slice the aubergine and slice the courgettes lengthways.
Sprinkle with salt, place in a colander, cover and weight down. Leave
for 30 minutes. Put the tomatoes in a bowl, cover with boiling water
for about 40 seconds, then plunge into cold water. Using a sharp
knife, peel off the skins. Finely chop the onion. Crush the garlic.
In a l;large saucepan, heat two tbsp of olive oil, add the garlic and
cook until coloured, then add the onion and cook gently until
softened. Add the tomatoes and sugar, bring to the boil, then simmer
for 40 minutes, uncovered to allow the sauce to reduce. Season with
salt and pepper and add a few basil leaves. The sauce should be thick
and concentrated. Rinse the aubergine and courgettes and pat dry. Dip
the vegetables in flour and set aside. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and
add the parmesan cheese. In a frying pan heat the oil. Dip the
aubergines and courgettes in the egg mixture and fry until golden on
both sides. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper and set aside. Preheat
the oven to 190c/375f/gas 5. Slice the mozzarella cheese. Assemble
the dish by layering the ingredients in a 20cm spring-release cake
tin. Place a third of the aubergines in the bottom, add half the
courgettes and a third of the cheese, tomato sauce and basil leaves.
Then add a layer of aubergines, cheese, tomato sauce, basil leaves,
remaining courgettes, cheese, tomato sauce, basil leaves and finally
aubergines. Sprinkle over parmesan cheese and bake in the oven for
20-26 minutes until golden brown. DISCLAIMER© Copyright 1996 -
