Step two: Form into balls about the size of a ping pong ball and pop onto a baking tray covered in baking parchment. Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes, or until cooked through.

Step three: Heat half the olive oil and cook the onions on a very low heat until soft, then add the tomatoes and the anchovies. Cook for around 15-20 minutes.

Step four: Heat the other half of the olive on the griddle and when it’s really hot, add the aubergines. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through.

That’s it! Layer some aubergine, some tomato sauce and some meatballs, and then top with grated parmesan. Mmmmmm.
