for 4 people
- 4 medium Santorini eggplants
- 350gr mozzarella in shims
- 100gr tough mozzarella grated
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic chopped
- 800 gr mature tomatoes peeled and chopped
- 1 small skein of mint chopped
- 1 small skein of basil chopped
- salt and black pepper
- olive oil

Put two spoons of olive oil in a casserole, saute the onion and the garlic, then add the tomatoes and let boil for 20 minutes until the sauce is thick. After the sauce is ready, shed the basil, the mint, salt and pepper and blend them together. Cut the eggplants in slices about 1.2 cm. Spread with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake them in grill until they melt and roast. Preheat the oven in 180oC. Lay some sauce in the pan and cover it with eggplants and continue with mozzarella slices. Repeat this process until there no ingredients left (you will make 3 or 4 layers). Lay the remaining sauce onto the last layer and sprinkle the grated mozzarella. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
