4 Servings


To be sliced

  • 2 aubergines
  • 3 courgettes
  • 1 marrow
  • 2 peppers Bright colours - orange or red

Marinara Sauce

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 stick celery chopped
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 2 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tbsp mixed Italian herbs
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Stock cube or beef or vegetable
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • low calorie cooking spray


Marinara Sauce

  1. Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and heat till hot. Throw in the onions and cook until soft. Add in the garlic and herbs and cook for a couple of minutes till the herbs become aromatic

  2. Add in the carrot and celery, and cook for a further 5 minutes. Make sure to keep stirring

  3. Add in the stock cube, balsamic vinegar and tin of tomatoes, then fill half of the tin with water and add that also. When the pan starts to bubble turn the heat down to medium and cook for 15-20 minutes - a good time to start slicing your vegetables!

  4. Once cooked, attack with a stick blender/put into a food processor and whizz up until smooth. Pour into a large oven proof dish

Sliced Vegetables

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Slice the vegetables on the mandolin and place onto separate plates. You want to layer them in the dish on top of the tomato sauce in a repeating pattern. Work around the edge then do the middle
  2. Once finished sprinkle a liberal amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper on top. A few sprays of low calorie cooking spray and top with a piece of baking parchment/greaseproof paper. This is just to stop the wafer thin slices from catching in the the hot oven

  3. Cook for 45 minutes at 190°C - it's cooked when the tomato sauce bubbles up around the vegetables. Serve immediately and enjoy!
