  • Slice eggplant lengthwise until you have 10 large slices to use as your sheets of "pasta.

  • In a large skillet on high heat add a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the onion, celery, carrots and garlic until tender. Add the chopped mushrooms and tin of lentils. Cook down until the mushrooms have released all their water. Add one packet of Denny Tomato & Mushroom Pasta Sauce and 2 bay leaves. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • In a medium sized oven proof casserole and half a packet of Denny Tomato & Mushroom Pasta Sauce. Spread across the bottom of the dish.
  • Add a large spoonful of mushroom filling to each eggplant slice and roll up like a cannelloni.
  • Place the eggplant rolls onto the pasta sauce. Top each roll with the remaining pasta sauce.
  • Grate over a generous amount of Parmesan cheese. Bake for 15 minutes at 180°C
