    About this recipe: I made this up one day out of things I had on hand, and it turned out to be one of my favourite sandwiches ever. Sauteed courgette pieces are coated with a zesty pasta sauce and topped with a generous helping of mozzarella cheese. They can also be made ahead of time, and heated just before serving.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 knob butter
    • 2 medium courgettes, cubed
    • 1 pinch red chilli flakes
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 250ml shop-bought pasta sauce
    • 170g grated mozzarella cheese
    • 4 individual ciabattas or baps, split

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the courgette in butter until browned and slightly tender. Season with red chilli flakes, salt and pepper, and stir in the pasta sauce. Cook and stir until sauce is heated.
    3. Spoon a generous amount of the courgette mixture into each ciabatta or bap. Top with a handful of grated mozzarella. Close the sandwiches, and wrap individually in aluminium foil.
    4. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until bread is heated through, and cheese is melted.
