  1. Preheat the oven to 220C (200CFan). Place the sliced aubergine on a non-stick baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with mixed herbs, salt and pepper. Bake for 20-30 minutes until soft turning half way through cooking.

  2. Meanwhile, place the jar of bolognese sauce in a pan and add the lentils. Then fill the empty jar 2/3s full of water and add to the pan.

  3. Bring to the boil and then gently simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes until the lentils are soft. Add a little more water during cooking if required.

  4. Make the topping by mixing the yogurt, crème fraîche and cheese together.

  5. Now assemble the moussaka. Place a layer of lentil mixture on the bottom of an oven proof dish followed by a layer of aubergines. Repeat this process again. With a fork carefully spread the cheese topping over the top and place under a preheated grill for 5-10 minutes to brown the top.

  6. Place your pitta breads in the toaster and serve with the moussaka.
