How to make it
- Slice the potatoes, courgettes and eggplants lengthwise into ½cm slices.
- Deep fry them – first the potatoes, then add the eggplants and finally add the courgettes.

- Gently fry the onions in a large pan.
- Add the crushed garlic and stir for 1 minute.
- Add the mushrooms and continue stirring.
- Add the tomatoes and bay leaves.
- Add the parsley.
- Continue heating until all the juice has been absorbed and you have a thick sauce.
- The Bechamel
- In a heavy-bottomed pan gently heat the butter until it melts.
- Add the flour and stir continuously.
- Add half of the milk and continue to stir with a whisk.
- When the mixture starts to thicken, add the rest of the milk whilst stirring continuously.
- When it starts to thicken again, lower the temperature to the minimum and add the grated cheese and then turn off.
- In a deep oven dish place a layer with half of the potatoes at the bottom.
- Add a layer with the courgettes on top and then a layer with the eggplants.
- Spread the sauce on top.
- Add a final layer with the remaining potatoes on top of the sauce.
- Add the béchamel on top and sprinkle the remaining cheese over it.
- Bake in a pre-heated moderate oven for approx. 40 minutes or until it has turned a golden colour on top.
