2cupsgrated hard cheese(I recommend a blend or Parmesan & Romano or feta)
Fry the onion and garlic until cooked then add minced lamb and fry until cooked. Add tomato puree, cinnamon, herbs and cloves stir together well.Add the water or (wine if using) so the mixture isn't too thick then put it to one side.
Wash aubergines, pat them dry and cut them into long slices about a quarter of an inch thick.
Cook in the microwave for five minutes and drain off the liquid, then put to one side.
Warm the cream cheese gently until it becomes liquid, add cream, nutmeg and stir together well
In a large casserole type dish, start to layer up the cooked ingredients.Start with a layer of tomato mixture, then eggplants, then cream layer.Repeat until the dish is full and top it off with the grated hard cheese and Italian seasoning.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 400F for 45 minutes until golden brown.
