  • Thank you for your recipe. I have a very similar recipe and this year with the amount of courgettes I decided to make batches of them and freeze them for winter. It became time consuming and messy so I decided to about 12 in one batch in the oven, and I was delighted with the result they even looked as if they came out of the fry pan. I will be doing them this way in future. No oil or ghee was used only baking paper.
