    My current favourite is one I sort of made up myself on one of those nothing much in fridge days.
    Take a few courgettes (or in my case a very big one that I had forgotten was growing when I went away) . Several tomatoes, 3 cloves of garlic. Oregano. A good sized onion. And a mix of different chillis depending on personal heat preferences. I quite like using satans kiss for a nice medium of heat and flavour (by that I mean my wife can eat it just but she is a chilli wuss lol). Although the last time I did add one of my bhut jolokia and a Trinidad scorpion (first time I have grown these).
    Cut your courgettes into nice manageable slices. I like mine to have a little crunch so leave them slightly thicker. Fry off in a bit of olive oil until they start to darken. Remove and leave to cool.
    Dice the onion and sweat them down in some olive oil. Add the tomatoes, oregano and the chillis you have chosen for the heat factor, a ghost for example. And keep on a low heat until the tomato has reduced into a sauce. Take off the heat.
    Now get oven proof dish big enough so you can make layers with your ingredients.
    Layer some courgettes on the bottom. Spoon over some of the sauce you have made so just covering. Now take the chillis you haven’t cooked ie satans kiss and cut into slices. Place a thin layer of these over the sauce. Another layer of courgettes. More sauce and more satans kiss. Repeat again and end with final layer of courgettes. Bit of salt and pepper over the top. Cover with foil and put in medium heat oven for 20-30 mins.
    Basically its a version ratatouille with chillis. I love this dish even though minimul ingredients aslong as you have chillis.
    I also very recently put a dish of this in the fridge after it had cooled and served as side dish at a bbq. I was amazed at the response I got. The only complaint I got was it was too spicey but they couldn’t stop eating it.
    Hope if anyone tries this then you enjoy it like I do.
