A cross between moussaka and lasagne. We make bolognese sauce in large quantities, sometimes in the slow cooker, and freeze in portions. If you want it gluten free it’s great without the pasta. Serves four.
one and a half cups bolognese sauce
one medium eggplant (aubergine) or two zucchini (courgettes), sliced about half a centimetre thick
one cup cooked pasta or three sheets of lasagne (optional)
large handful (more if you don’t use the pasta) of silverbeet (chard) or spinach leaves, finely shredded
one cup of thick, white sauce
80g grated cheese
Oil a shallow, ovenproof dish. Layer half the bolognese sauce, half the greens, half the slices of eggplant or zucchini. Add a second layer of bolognese, greens and pasta (if using). Top with a layer of eggplant or zucchini. Pour over the white sauce, top with the grated cheese. Bake at 170 degrees C for about 50 minutes. Allow to cool for ten minutes before serving.
