Look no further.


Tomatoey, cheesy, baked goodness that’ll feed the whole family (and takes less than an hour to prepare from start to finish)…there’s not much you won’t love about this tuna-and-brinjal bake.

Start by preheating the oven to 190°C. Thinly slice 2 medium-sized brinjals and brush on both sides with olive oil. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes, or until tender.

Cover the base of an ovenproof dish with a thin layer of home-made pomodoro sauce or store-bought Napoletana sauce (about a ¼ cup). Cover with a layer of brinjal. Add 1 can of drained and flaked tuna and 75 g shredded mozzarella cheese. Season lightly.

Repeat this process, using a second can of tuna, until the dish is full. Sprinkle with 3-4 T grated Parmesan and moisten with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbling hot.

Garnish with a handful of fresh basil.

Now you do! Watch and see how Woolies’ tuna is caught.
