Step 1 - Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 200 c fan / 180 c / Gas 8

Step 2 - Prepare the aubergines

Cut the aubergines into long slices 1cm thick. Transer to a colander and sprinkle with salt, set aside for 15 minutes, rinse then pat dry.

Step 3 - Fry the aubergines

Heat a splash of SEGGIANO EVOO in a large non-stick frying pan and working in batches, fry the aubergine slices until golden brown on both sides. Place the cooked slices on a paper towel to drain.

Step 4 - Build the dish

Lightly grease a large baking dish with a little SEGGIANO EVOO and spread with a thin layer of the SEGGIANO Melanzane sauce, followed by a layer of the aubergine, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil and seasoning.

Step 5 - Repeat the layers

Repeat the layers by adding another layer of aubergines, sauce, cheeses, basil and seasoning. Repeat until you have used all the aubergine, finishing with a layer of sauce and the rest of the basil leaves.

Step 6 - Add the breadcrumbs

Toss the breadcrumbs in a little EVOO and sprinkle on top of the layers.

Step 7 - Bake in the oven

Bake for 30 minutes until bubbling and browned.

Step 8 - Finishing touches

Allow to cool slightly then sprinkle with extra Parmesan and torn basil leaves to garnish.
