Invasion of the courgettes
Time to once again delve deeply into the recipe searches to find something interesting to do with them.
Today's courgette recipe idea is courtesy of the Smitten Kitchen website. I found this by following a link from a link from a link, a chain that started by clicking on the 'next blog' button on the taskbar - a sure fire way to get lost in space for a couple of hours.
I am making an adaptation of her ratatouille tart.
On this occasion I am in complete agreement with the smitten kitchen, summer is too short for making pastry, so I am using ready rolled feuillette pastry - a type of puff pastry readily available in the chiller cabinet here in France.
Then layer on thin slices of aubergine and courgette.
Just before baking, add some mozzarella roughly torn into chunks and a generous spinkle of dried or fresh basil leaves.
Serve warm or cold for a summery lunch or as we are tonight, as a side dish for some barbequed pork chops.
