    We grew two eggplant this season and I have never really known a good way to use them. So I was really chuffed to find a good recipe and we tried it out tonight. Delish!

    I used two medium eggplant. Cut them lengthways into slices about 5mm thick. With a ridged frying pan I cooked them on high heat with olive oil on both sides till well coloured and tender. In a medium size baking dish pour some basic pasta sauce over the bottom. Lay a few eggplant slices over the sauce. Top with dollops of a mix made of the following:

    250g ricotta cheese
    shredded basil leaves
    slivered almonds (I actually just chopped a few almonds up)
    fresh breadcrumbs
    one egg yolk
    grated parmesan cheese

    Then put another layer of the eggplant slices. Then pour the rest of the pasta sauce over and top with grated cheddar cheese. Bake at 180 C until yummy browned and bubbly. Enjoy!
