  15. Make little stacks of the veggie slices in your hands first in order to make the big spiral. This makes it easier to go around the baking dish, especially if you're going in colour order like I did here. I think it makes it visually pop!
  16. colorful vegetable slices
     
  17. Place the stacks of veggies in the sauce around the dish. The Bechamel's thickness also aids in keeping the veggies standing up nicely.

Meant to add if you don't have one big eggplant, use 3 baby ones like I did :)
