This bake is rich, delicious and creamy. It can be served for lunch or dinner with salad, meat or pasta on the side. For larger gatherings, the bake can be cut into small pieces and distributed among many people.

I often make the bake on the weekend and wrap each slice in foil, for work lunches throughout the week. The slices will keep in the fridge for up to 4 or 5 days.

Wash the zucchinis, then grate them and place in a colander. Add a few dashes of salt and stir through. Leave for ten minutes, then press out the moisture using a fork or spoon.
