Method

1 hour
 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease an ovenproof dish.

2. Tomato sauce Heat the oil and stir-fry the onion and garlic until soft. Add the tomatoes

and herbs, reduce the temperature and simmer until fragrant and not watery. Season with

salt and pepper and set aside.

3. Spinach cheese Stir-fry the garlic in oil until soft. Add the spinach and heat until wilted.

Remove from the heat and leave to cool for about 15-20 minutes. Purée in a food processor.

Add the cottage cheese and egg whites and season well with nutmeg, salt and pepper.

Stir in the mozzarella cheese.

4. Vegetable and pasta layers Brush the brinjal slices with oil, place on a baking sheet and

roast in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until soft but not dry.

5. Immerse the pasta sheets one at a time in boiling water until slightly softened.

6. Spoon a little tomato sauce into the ovenproof dish. Layer the pasta, spinach cheese,

brinjal slices, mushrooms and tomato sauce. Repeat the layers, ending with the spinach

cheese.

7. Sprinkle over the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and bake for 40 minutes or until

cooked through. Serve with a green salad.
