Easy eggplant lasagna

Ingredients

  • 3 eggplants
  • 400g fresh ricotta
  • 500g grated cheddar
  • 250g grated parmesan
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 (400g) cans diced tomatoes
  • 5g fresh basil leaves
  • 5g fresh thyme leaves
  • 125ml red wine
  • 40g butter
  • 375g packet of dried lasagna sheets
  • Baby spinach leaves (optional)
  • Frozen spinach, defrosted, drained, with excess liquid squeezed out (optional)

Method

  • Step 1
    Cut the eggplants in half, and steam in a metal colander over a saucepan of boiling water for about 10 minutes, or until soft and yielding to the touch (this makes it juicy and tender). Cool until safe to touch, then pull the skins off. Chop the flesh roughly.
  • Step 2
    Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Step 3
    While the eggplant is steaming, mix one tub of ricotta with a good handful of grated cheese (parmesan is nice, but cheddar is good too – a mixture of the two is delicious!). Add one egg, a generous sprinkling of sea salt and about a tablespoon each of nutmeg and black pepper.
  • Step 4
    Fry the eggplant in about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, along with four cloves of crushed garlic. Once the garlic is fragrant, add the tomatoes, basil, thyme and a good amount of black pepper, as well as about half a cup of red wine. Simmer until fragrant (about 5 or 10 minutes). At the last minute, add a knob of butter and stir through.
  • Step 5
    Line the base of your lasagna dish with dried lasagna sheets (the sauce for this recipe is often quite wet, so dried is best. If your sauce is slightly drier, feel free to use fresh lasagna). Add a layer of tomato sauce, a layer of cheese and another layer of lasagna sheets until the dish is full. If using baby spinach leaves, place a layer of them between the tomato and the cheese sauces. Make sure that the final layer is cheese, then top with a mixture of the parmesan and cheddar. The amount you use will depend on the size of your dish – just make sure that the surface of the dish is covered with a thin layer.
  • Step 6
    Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until the top layer of cheese is golden and melted.

Cauliflower lasagne sheets

  • 1.1kg cauliflower, trimmed, coarsely chopped
  • 40g (1/2 cup) finely grated parmesan
  • 2 eggs

Method

  • Step 1
    For the cauliflower lasagne sheets, process half of the cauliflower in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Repeat with the remaining cauliflower. Cover and microwave on high, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minute or until very tender. Drain through a fine sieve, pressing down well with a wooden spoon to remove any excess liquid. Return to the bowl and add the parmesan and egg. Season. Stir well to combine.
  • Step 2
    Preheat oven to 180C /160C fan forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Divide the cauliflower mixture between the prepared trays and use your fingertips or a palette knife to gently press each batch of cauliflower mixture to rectangles of about 22 x 30cm. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until mixture has dried out. Set aside to cool. Cut into 10cm-wide lasagna sheets (you should have 6 sheets).
  • Step 3
    Meanwhile heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the leek. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes or until soft. Increase heat to high. Add the chicken and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until cooked. Add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are golden. Add the spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add the cream cheese. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes or until cheese has melted. Stir through the tarragon and season. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Lightly grease a square 19cm (base measurement) 24cm (top measurement) baking dish. Lightly brush the base of the prepared dish with half of the tomato pasta sauce. Place 2 pieces of lasagne over the pasta sauce. Top with half of the chicken mixture and sprinkle with 1/3 cup mozzarella. Repeat with another layer of cauliflower and remaining chicken mixture. Top with remaining lasagne. Finish with the remaining pasta sauce and remaining mozzarella. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Set aside for 7 minutes to rest before serving.
