This typically Italian mixture of aubergines, tomatoes, peppers, mozzarella and Parmesan comes together in no time and has a rich and full flavour. Serve with focaccia and a green salad. Delicious!
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Mediterranean Tomato Sauce can be used instead of the passata, if you prefer.
Just to add to my review below. I salted the aubergines first, left them for 30 mins then rinsed and dried. When grilling, I sprayed them with low cal olive oil spray. I think the peppers must be the jar of roasted peppers (got them in sainsburys) as they added a fantastic flavour. Used a garlic mill rather than fresh garlic just to make it esier. This recipe would go really well with baked pot or wedges or crusty bread. I am making it again tonight!! - 21 Aug 2012
Very tasty veggie meal, used spicy peppers for extra flavour. - 14 Jul 2011
I just made this and wow, wow, wow it was tremendous. The flavour astounded me. Shared it with my 20 year old son who loved it too. I used newly bought dried mixed herbs and sloshed a bit extra in - they added a good flavour. Also the peppers were a jar of roasted peppers, apparently thats what pimento peppers are!. Totally recommend this, it far exceeded my expectations. An extremely tasty supper dish or light lunch. - 20 Aug 2012
