2 aubergines, sliced in half lengthways
3 tablespoons of olive oil

Brush the aubergines with 2 tablespoons of the oil and arrange, cut side up onto a baking sheet.
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is soft and just starting to brown. Add the tomatoes and tomato puree and simmer gently for 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
Once the aubergines are done, remove from the oven and cover each half with some sauce and 2 mozzarella slices.
Season with salt and pepper and place back in the oven for 4-5 minutes so the cheese melts.

Scatter basil leaves over the top (optional) and serve immediately.
