{Goats Cheese & Pesto Bake}

This recipe has been a favourite of ours for a quite a few years and is for our lovely neighbour Miriam who is a vegetarian with a beautiful singing voice, we get to listen to her sing occasionally, unfortunately all she hears coming from our house is me screaming like a banshee at the children.

We had a watercress and avocado salad with it, it needs a salad with a lemon juice dressing to cut through the richness of the goats cheese and pesto, hope you try this one Miriam, I'll be over soon to raid your plum tree :)

...the bake
olive oil
2 onions, sliced
2 zuccinis, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
120g soft goats cheese
150g basil pesto
handful grated cheese

Preheat oven to 200. Heat a frypan over medium heat add a little oil and the sliced onions and cook till soft, sweet and just starting to colour, transfer them to a pie dish then add the zuccinis to the pan, season them and fry them to the same stage, adding the garlic half way through. 

Pop them on top of the onions then dollop half the goats cheese around along with half the pesto, next layer is the sliced tomatoes, season them then top with a handful of grated cheese and finish with dollops of the remaining pesto & goats cheese, bake for about 30 minutes till bubbling and golden.
