1.Heat oil in a large frying pan, add onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes.
2. Add mushrooms, stir fry for another 5 minutes then transfer onion/mushroom mix to a separate bowl.
3. Chop aubergine roughly then fry it in the remaining oil in the pan until golden
4. Add onion/mushroom mixture and cooked pasta
5. Season GENEROUSLY with salt and pepper
6. Transfer to an oiled gratin dish and pour over the cream, sprinkle the grated cheese all over the top and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
7. Put the dish in a preheated oven (190 degrees or gas mark 4) and bake for 30 minutes until bubbling and golden

Serve with a simple green salad
