  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 6 mins, then drain well.

  2. Mix the garlic with the oil and some seasoning. Strip the herb leaves from their stalks, then add to the oil. Drizzle a little of the oil over the base and sides of a 1.5-litre ovenproof dish. Layer half the potatoes, tomatoes and courgettes in the dish, drizzling with garlic and herb oil as you go. Mix the two cheeses and sprinkle half over the veg.

  3. Repeat the layers of veg and oil, drizzle over the remaining oil, then sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Bake for 40-45 mins until the veg is tender and the top golden and crisp.

Did mine with courgette, potato, onion, bacon, cheddar and Edam. To serve drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. DIVINE!!! Love this recipe! Great for a cozy meal for two, and am using it to cook for 200+ soon

This was nice, though the potatoes were still quite hard so I might boil them for a bit longer next time. I only used one cheese to save money. Tasty!

I use tinned tomatoes instead of fresh- have made it a few times - love it - and have used whatever cheese I have at the time.

Unfortunately I was not overly impressed with this dish. Used all home-grown vegetables for the dish and felt it was slightly bland. It was a good use of the vegetables, but just needed something else to give it flavour.

Hi there to give this a bit of flavour just add a pinch of the herb dill!

It was a delicious summer lunch, so I'll keep the recipe and make it again and again. As the season of the new potatoes is over, I used normal potatoes, peeled, which also worked well.

I made this today, I didnt use any oil and I only had parmesan, although the flavours were nice I did find it a bit dry, I would make it again but add maybe a touch of stock or water to moisten it.

Made this today and it was a lovely summery accompaniment to roast beef!

I make this without cooking the potatoes in advance. Just bake 180C fan for 1 hr and the potatoes cook fine. Don't use any oil either except for on the dish.
