I keep meaning to make this but haven't got around to it yet - it looks so tasty!

Or maybe this one looks nicer?

shove them down your blouse and frighten the window cleaner

One of my favourite meals we have at home is similar to Stirling's links but with feta cheese in between the layers of aubergine and tomato sauce (but make your own sauce its much nicer, don't use a jar of passata)

chevre.i don't have a window cleaner, otherwise, yes , great !!

It is very, very tasty.....serve with some green salad and maybe some ciabatta or olive bread to mop up the sauce <<slob alert>> wink

I love aubergines. This is a nice sloppy, picnicky sort of one.

You need:

- your 2 aubergines (or more)
- coriander pesto
- 2-3 limes
- Tabasco sauce
- halloumi cheese (about 1.5 packs)

Slice aubergines about 1cm thick. Brush with olive oil & bake in hot oven (200C) until browning, about 15-20 mins - turn halfway through cooking.

Squeeze limes. Sprinkle aubergine slices with lime juice & Tabasco to taste - keep a bit of the lime juice back to finish with.

Slice halloumi slightly thinner if poss (0.75cm-ish). Layer up aubergine and halloumi, spreading a generous layer of coriander pesto in between each layer.

Cover with foil and bake for about 10 minutes. Slop into pitta bread with tomato and cucumber salad, and a bit of the lime juice.

Hungry now....

I make a version of Stirling's dish (the second one, with the Parmesan) all the time - it's probably one of my favourite meals. It may well be on the menu tonight, as I have all that in the house! I don't put an egg on top of mine though; just masses of grated Parmesan.

sounds yummy, although i am the only one who likes cinnamon and DS has a nut allergy grin but i would make that for myself, it sounds delish
