Aubergine and Pasta

Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 84

This oven-bake is a great meal for the whole family on cold autumn days. I recommend using 4 tbsp. tomato paste and 100ml of water in addition to the tinned tomatoes. This will give you more sauce and tomato flavour and the dish will be nice and moist.

For a gluten-free option, chose gluten-free maccaroni. For a vegan version, try using vegan “cheese” slices instead of the mozzarella and sprinkle some home-made vegan “parmesan” on top. You can find a recipe for vegan “parmesan” here.
