Ingredients

  • 2 medium brinjals, very thinly sliced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 cups Home-made or store-bought Napoletana sauce
  • 2 x 170 g cans light meat tuna chunks, drained
  • 150 g mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 - 4 T Parmesan, grated
  • Basil, a handful, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Lightly brush the brinjal on both sides with oil. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, or until tender.

Cover the base an ovenproof dish with a thin layer of sauce – about 1⁄4 cup. Cover with a layer of brinjal – about a third. Add half the flaked tuna and half the mozzarella. Season lightly. Repeat this process until the dish is full.

Sprinkle with Parmesan and moisten with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbling hot.

Cook's note: You’ll love this laid-back version of a much-loved dish. A jar of readymade Napoletana sauce from Woolworths is an obvious shortcut, but if you want to make your own, try this recipe, the perfect pomodoro sauce.
