  1. Mist a nonstick pan with cooking spray and set over a medium heat. Add the aubergine and onion, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender, then add the garlic and chilli flakes, and cook for another minute. Pour in the passata and stock, and gently simmer for 15 minutes, then stir in the sundried tomatoes, olives, capers and lentils.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6, and line a baking tray with baking paper. Season the cod with freshly ground black pepper and wrap each fillet in a slice of Parma ham. Put on the prepared tray and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cod is cooked through and the ham is crisp.
  3. Divide the lentil puttanesca between plates, top with the Parma-wrapped cod and serve with the parsley scattered over the top.
