Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Place the courgettes in a single layer in a shallow ovenproof dish, fairly tightly together, cut-side up. Brush lightly with 1 tsp oil and bake for 20 mins.
  2. To make the stuffing, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and season with lots of black pepper.
  3. Sprinkle the stuffing on top of the courgettes and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Bake for a further 10-15 mins or until the courgettes are softened and the topping is golden and crisp. Serve hot with a mixed salad.

Made this tonight, courgette is rather soggy and not particularly tasty. Overall a disappointment
