Courgette and Cottage Cheese Pie

This is such an easy recipe but impressive. It doesn't involve baking pastry blind so it is very quick to make.  We love it served with salads that you can make ahead in the morning so that serving lunch is not a chore e.g. potato salad, tzatziki and a Greek salad with red wine, garlic, lemon and our original oil dressing. 

You'll need a round loose bottomed cake tin about 9 inches in diameter.
