The instruction how to make Eggplant and lamb pasta bake
- Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Spray both sides of the eggplant with oil. Heat a large non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. Cook half the eggplant for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining eggplant.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following the packet directions. Drain.
- Add the lamb to the frypan and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 3-4 minutes or until lamb changes colour. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion softens slightly. Add the tomato, tomato paste and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly.
- Whisk together the yoghurt and egg in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the pasta and stir until well combined.
- Place half the eggplant in the base of six 500ml (2-cup) capacity oven-proof dishes. Top with the mince mixture and remaining eggplant. Top with the pasta mixture. Combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan in a bowl. Sprinkle over the top of the pasta. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until golden.
