Pasta à la Christoph

All children love noodles; some with sauce - but most of them without.

My children would eat pasta every day; if I let them, they would soon be as fat as I am. So I try to disguise the unloved vegetables as pasta, for example eggplants:

 

  • Cut aubergines lengthwise into very thin slices and fry them in plenty of olive oil.
  • Fry the chopped onions and garlic in oil as well and top up with ½ liter Curtice Brothers Pasta Sauce.
  • Roughly grate 300g of Gouda or cut mozzarella into thin slices.
  • Line the bottom of a casserole dish with a layer of aubergines, cover with some sauce and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Repeat the same order until all ingredients are used up; if necessary, pour over any remaining olive oil.
  • Put it in the oven at 180°C for one hour, let it cool slightly and serve as lasagna.

 

And I'll have a glass of red wine
