Courgettes, also well known as zucchinis, are a versatile ingredient that combines with other flavours especially tomatoes. Perfect then, for a salad with roasted tomatoes...
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Thinly slice the courgettes. Chop half the tomatoes; leave the rest on the vine.
Grease a baking dish with oil and layer the courgette thinly over the bottom. Scatter the diced tomato on top, drizzle with the rest of the oil and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Place the tomatoes still on the vine plus two sprigs of thyme in the dish and heat in the oven for 20 min.
Take the courgette out of the oven; remove the sprigs of thyme and sprinkle the dish with the fresh thyme leaves, the onion rings and grated curls of Parmesan.
This dish can be served hot or cold.

Tip: Place the onion rings in ice water, drain and pat dry, to get rid of the sharp flavour.
