Italian flavoured courgettes, perfect with meat or fish.
Slice the courgette (on a slant or straight rounds)
Start layering in a small oven proof dish - start with a layer of courgette, drizzle ligthly with oil, sprinkle over black pepper, (and garlic if not using garlic oil), dollop on tomato sauce, sprinkle with cheese, then repeat until you finish with a layer of cheese
Bake in the over at 180C or 160C fan for around 30 minutes until the cheese has melted
Serve alongside meat, fish or pasta dishes
The recipe can be made bigger or smaller depending on the number of people.
Garlic - you can use fresh cloves (crushed), or garlic powder. Athough I tend to just use garlic infued oil.
Any hard cheese can be used - parmesan or grana padano are good, although cheddar works just as well
