Courgette Cheese and Tomato Bake

This is a lovely simple recipe, great for using your home grown courgettes and tomatoes.  Courgettes are high in fibre, vitamin C and K.   Tomatoes are also packed with nutrients including lycopene which has anti-cancer properties, they are also high in C and K, so this a good healthy combination.  I use a lovely sheep and goat milk cheese to grate on the top of this, use a cheese of your choice, I recommend avoiding cows cheese as goat and sheep are easier for humans to digest.
This recipe has been vetted by a nine year old, who before he tasted this, did not like courgettes or tomatoes that were cooked!  His mom told me that he had not eaten either before!  And he finished the whole serving!

4 medium courgettes (zuchinni) grated thinly
3 tomatoes chopped
1/4 cup grated goat and sheep cheese
black pepper

Put oven on to 175C or 350 degrees.  Mix the courgettes and tomatoes together in a bowl.  Place in an ovenproof glass dish - lasagne size.  Spread the cheese on the top and put in the oven for 10 minutes, then place under the grill for 2 minutes to crisp the top lightly.  Remove from grill and serve with main dish.
