Delicious. Great, simple but really tasty recipe. Cooked it as a starter for eight people but could easily make enough for a large number at a summer buffet/barbecue. I added 1 tablespoon of seasoned breadcrumbs that also had a sprinkling of chilli flakes included and cooked each courgette half wrapped in a square of greased foil. I didn't have enough mozzarella so added some finely grated Swiss cheese to bulk up the cheese content. - 22 Jul 2015
