Utensils

  • parchment paper
  • Step 1/14

    • parchment paper

    Make the parchment lid by folding your square of parchment paper from the bottom to the top and then from the right to left. Now take the bottom right corner and fold it over. Fold in the same direction two more times and that’s it. Measure to the centre of your pan so you can mark where to cut at the edge of the pan and also remove the tip

  • Step 2/14

    Break lasagne sheets in half and parboil in large heavy based pan of salted water for 3 minutes. You can do them in two separate batches to avoid them all sticking together. Set out on parchment paper.

  • Step 7/14

    Preheat oven to 200 C then add the contents of skillet into the empty pan used to parboil lasagne sheets. I give the skillet a quick clean out at this stage and oil it lightly with some kitchen roll. You can now start layering up the lasagne

  • Step 8/14

    Start with a little sauce at the bottom of the skillet before adding the cooked aubergine slices. Grate Parmesan over with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese

    Take half of the lasagne sheets and place them as evenly as possible around the pan then add some of the sauce followed by grating some parmesan and sprinkle over the mozzarella. Make sure to leave plenty of the meat sauce and mozzarella for the top layer

  • Step 10/14

    Finish with the rest of the lasagne sheets. Make sure to spread all the remaining sauce evenly all around the pan so all lasagne sheets are well covered. Follow this by liberally grating the parmesan, mozzarella and a little bit of cheddar cheese for the top
