Now make a layer of lasagna sheets, cover with the sauce, now make a layer of fried aubergines, a layer of grated parmesan cheese, now a layer of lasagna sheets, sauce, fried aubergines… carry on this way. The last layer must be of sauce. Sprinkle with some more parmesan and little knobs of butter here and there on the surface.
