400g tin chopped tomatoes
¼ tsp chilli powder
¼ tsp sugar
125ml clear vegetable broth

- Preheat the oven
- Trim the ends of the aubergine and cut lengthways into ¼ inch thick slices. Place the aubergine on a flat surface and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 20 minutes.
- Wash the aubergine slices in cold water and dry with paper towels. Arrange on a baking tray and brush with oil. Place on a preheated grill for approximately 3 minutes, until lightly browned
- Turn the slices, brush with oil and grill for 3 further minutes
- Cook the courgette in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and leave to one side
- To prepare the lasagne: Fill a large pan ¾ full with water, and add 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp salt.
- Bring to the boil. Individually place 4 Loprofin Lasagne sheets in the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes, over a medium heat (Check during cooking to ensure the pasta sheets do not stick to each other.) Carefully remove each lasagne sheet from the pan onto a flat surface. Repeat with the remaining 4 lasagne sheets
- To prepare the sauce:
- Place all the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
- To assemble the rolls, place a slice of aubergine on a flat surface and cover with a sheet of lasagne. Place a slice of tomato at one end and lay two basil leaves and a courgette on top of the tomato
- Roll the aubergine and pasta, from the tomato end, to form a tube. Repeat with remaining aubergine, pasta, tomato, basil and courgette to give 8 rolls
- Pour a thin layer of sauce into the baking dish and arrange the aubergine rolls on the top. Pour the remaining sauce over the rolls and cover the dish with aluminium foil.
- Bake for 25 minutes. If desired, garnish with fresh basil and serve immediately.
