Recipe for Mediterranean mozzarella lasagne. Cheese and three veg! If the fresh pasta is thick, pre-cook it before using. If the tomatoes are pulpy, squeeze out the seeds.

Mediterranean-Mozzarella-Lasagne

Ingredients:

400 g Courgettes
400 g Eggplant
3 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, use up to 4 Tbsp
1 kg Tomatoes, firm and ripe, thinly sliced
2 cloves Garlic, diced
2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
12 Basil leaves, large, torn
250 g Mozzarella cheese, fresh, thinly sliced
300 g Lasagne sheets, fresh
100 g Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Directions

  • Top and tail the courgettes and eggplant. Diagonally slice into 5mm rounds. Brush both sides with olive oil. Heat a ridged frying pan and grill the courgettes and eggplant in batches, until char-grilled. Cover briefly to soften.
  • Preheat the oven to 190C.
  • Lightly brush a 29cm x 21cm deep pan baking dish with oil. Place a layer of the sliced tomatoes — about ⅓ — on the base. Season.
  • Next, layer with half of the courgette and eggplant slices. Sprinkle with half each of the garlic, balsamic vinegar, basil, mozzarella and lasagne. Repeat, ending with a layer of tomatoes on top. Sprinkle with parmesan.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 60-70 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes or until the parmesan is golden on top.
