  • 100g/4oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 15ml/1tbsp snipped fresh basil leaves
  • 5ml/1tsp olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/400F/Gas Mark 6. In an ovenproof dish toss together the courgettes, tomatoes, basil and oil with plenty of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake for 20 mins or until the courgettes are pale golden. Push the vegetables to the side of the dish to make a well in the centre; carefully crack the egg into the hole and sprinkle over the cheese. Bake for a further 8-10mins or until the egg is cooked to your liking. Serve hot with salad.
