  2. Drain and dry the aubergine slices with kitchen paper and arrange on a greased baking tray.

  3. Spread a teaspoonful of passata on each aubergine slice and top with mozzarella, tomato slices, seasoning and basil leaves. Drizzle a little oil over each basil leaf.

  4. Cook in the oven at 220°C (425°F/Gas mark 7) for 15 minutes. Cool for a minute before serving.
