In an ovenproof dish add the passata, pesto, double cream, thyme leaves, 2 tbsp of the olive oil, the 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar, season with salt and pepper and mix well. Place the dish to one side while you prepare the aubergine.

Sit the aubergines in the sauce cut face down and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Now pop into the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes.
