      For batter
      100g plain flour

    Method

    1. Pre heat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Make the sauce. In a pan over a medium heat, fry the garlic in the oil for 5 minutes until soft. Add the tomatoes and basil, season and cook gently for 20-30 minutes.
    2. To make the batter, put the flour in a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the beaten eggs. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper, and mix well to a thickish batter.
    3. In a frying pa, gently heat a little oil. Dip the courgette slices in the blatter and fry, in batches, for 3 -4 minutes each side until golden. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.
    4. Put a layer of courgette in a 2.5 - litre baking dish. Add a third of the tomato sauce and a third of the cheeses. Repeat twice.
    5. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top. Leave to cool a little and serve.
    6. Wine Note Don't overwhelm the delicate courgettes in this dish - stick to a light, fresh white such as Pinot Blanc fromAlsace or an Italian Verdicchio.
