•  1 can diced tomato

Step 2 - cheese sauce

•  150g milk

•  1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese

•  salt and pepper to taste

Step 3 - layering

•  Spray oil

•  1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese


25 minutes prep

50 mins ready to eat

Stovetop, Oven and Thermo machine

•  Preheat oven 180C (356F) degrees

•  Slice zucchini lengthways as thin as possible with a

   mandolin or wide peeler.  This will be your "pasta


•  Place all step 2 ingredients except tomatoes into fry

   pan and fry until onions are soft.  Then add

   tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes

•  While tomato sauce is cooking place step 3

   ingredients in the thermo machine and

   cook speed 3, 100C (212F) degrees for 7 minutes     

•  In a oven proof dish 20cmx 20cm sprayed with

   cooking oil place a layer of zucchini strips in the

   bottom, then spread half the tomato sauce mixture,

   then 1/2 cheese sauce. Repeat and then sprinkle

   the top with grated cheese.

•   Cook in oven for 25 minutes

This makes a great side dish.  For a vegetarian option you can leave off the bacon.  Its soo good first time we made it people had three helpings and even Miss three ate it!

If you don't have a thermo machine cook the cheese sauce on the stove top in a saucepan.  Melt the butter  on a low heat and mix in flour to make a paste.  Graudally add the milk while stiring, then add salt peper and cheese and stir until cheese is melted.  Using this method will take a little longer
