Simple recipe for healthy Eggplant Parmigiana

2-3 medium eggplants
250g Napoletana sauce (organic, sugar-free if possible)
1 cup ricotta cheese (or use lentils as a vegan option)
1 bunch basil leaves
Sea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chilli

How To
Preheat oven to 180° Celsius.

Slice eggplant into medium-thickness circular shapes.

Add half the eggplant slices to a baking dish then spoon over half the Napolitana sauce, ricotta and basil. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle sea salt.

Repeat the above process with the remaining eggplant, sauce, ricotta and basil so that you have 2 layers.

Bake in oven for 45 minutes – 1 hour. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
