This is a lovely warm filling sandwich with a pleasant blend of flavours. It is vegetarian and is easy to make. It might not be much to look at, but the taste and texture more than make up for its visual shortcomings.

Then using a grill pan (or frying pan), lightly oil the courgette slices and sprinkle with the remaining and grill (fry) until they become soft and slightly browned.
