  • 1 kg zucchinis, thickly sliced
  • 4 tbsp chopped basil
  • 500ml passata
  • 60g cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a baking dish, lay and sprinkle over chopped basil.

Pour over passata and sprinkle with cheese.

Cover with foil or a lid and bake for 30 minutes.


  • I like to sprinkle a little garlic salt over these zucchinis but that may be too strong for toddlers.
