Courgettes Jim's style - easy supper

OK, getting used to this technology, but very pleased with myself I have come this far. Just making supper, its a healthy one tonight. Hope you enjoy this recipe. I first tried it on Scilly, made with freshly picked courgettes from Sarah's dad's allotment, I am trying to recreate a taste of Scilly! Enjoy

3 0r 4 courgettes, sliced in half
crushed garlic
2 shallots or onion finely diced
Rock salt and ground black pepper
Fresh baby plum or cherry tomatoes
Any fresh herbs you have such as basil, coriander, lemon thyme chives, oregano etc
glug of olive oil (use sparingly if dieting!)
grated cheese optional

Place sliced courgettes in a oven proof dish
sprinkle garlic, onion, herbs & tomatoes and top with a drizzle of oil. Season
Cover with foil and place in preheated oven (180)for 20 mins,
Take out of oven, top with grated cheese and place under a grill for 5 mins until bubbling and lightly coloured.

Tonight my courgettes will be served with a herbed breast of Turkey, no carbs for me today, but may have to mop up the juices with some bread if I cannot resist!!

In between childcare duties today, I have contacted several local business about the cooking classes, positive feedback, so looking forward to a busy few months ahead. Just getting copy done for some local advertising. Any suggestions welcome to boost interest.
