Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Grease a 20 cm (8 inches) square, 6 cm (2 1/4 inch) deep ovenproof dish.
  • Prepare a baking tray by lining it with baking paper then brush and season the zucchini and eggplant with oil, salt, and pepper. Lay flat on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes until tender and golden.
  • Mix the ricotta, basil, nutmeg and lemon zest and juice together in a bowl until evenly combined. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the nuts and parmesan.
  • Layer half the eggplant slices over the base of the prepared dish, overlapping to cover completely. Spread the Bolognese over the eggplant. Use all the zucchini to make a layer over the Bolognese, overlapping to cover completely.
  • Sprinkle half the ricotta mixture over the zucchini, then top with a layer of the remaining eggplant and press down gently. Sprinkle remaining ricotta over, and top with the nut and parmesan mixture.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, and serve hot.
