  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat. Add cherry tomatoes; toss quickly so they just begin to cook but don't lose their shape. Transfer to the bottom of a medium sized casserole dish. Repeat with the courgette slices, adding more oil if needed. Layer on top of the tomatoes. Add the crushed garlic to the pan; stir, then spoon on top of the courgette slices in the baking dish.
  3. Mix breadcrumbs with grated cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper. Srinkle breadcrumb mixture evenly on top of courgettes.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes, or until breadcrumbs are golden and vegetables have softened.
