    i loved this recipe so simple and delicious. i didnt have a courgette so i put a few mini orange salad peppers instead. as part of teh cheese i added some sream cheese which worked really nicely. i will definitely make it again and experiment with the ingredients. good source of protein for a veggi like myself. - 03 Jan 2010

    Lovely I didn't add courgette but it tasted really nice without. Even my 'meat eating' hubby loved it. Will definately be making it again. - 15 Feb 2011

    Very good. I used a flan pastry base. I used mature cheddar cheese, which I think was a little bit too strong. I'm definitely going to make this again and try it with different cheeses. - 15 Jul 2010
