  • Time preparation 15 Minutes

  • Serve Serves 4

  • Butter, for greasing
  • 1 medium courgette
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 150ml milk

  • 90g pack Cooks’ Ingredients Pulled Ham Hock
  • 250g mixed baby tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tbsp Sacla’ No.1 Classic Basil Pesto
  • 50g mature Cheddar, finely grated

Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Lightly butter a small roasting tin about 20x26cm and line with baking parchment. Using a peeler, cut the courgette into long ribbons. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the ribbons and cook quickly for 2-3 minutes until just wilted. Remove from the pan.

Pour the mix into the prepared tin, and scatter over the courgette ribbons and tomatoes. Dot teaspoonfuls of pesto over the top, and sprinkle with the cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes until just firm to the touch and browned. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.
