Zucchini Slice via Stephanie's

This recipe was found in Stephanie's 'Travelling and Tasting' book. It's called 'Anna-Maria's Zucchini Slice'. Dur-e used to bring home the small bits that were left over from the restaurant's 'Centre Table' lunches. We warmed it in the oven for a little while and it was just so good. I think the quality of the ingredients makes a huge difference to this dish - but use what you can afford and it'll still be wonderful.

500g grated unpeeled zucchini
1 onion chopped finely
1 cup bacon finely diced
1 cup grated parmesan
1 cup self raising flour
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
3 tomatoes

Mix all ingredients together except for the tomato slices.
Grease your tin thoroughly with olive oil or butter.
Pour into 25cm square tin - (or a bigger rectangular dish for a flatter slice that cuts into more pieces!)
Top with the tomato slices and more salt and pepper (some basil would be nice too).
Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes until firm.
Sometimes it can take longer.
And if you go for the shallow dish, it will only take half an hour or so.
Serve hot or warm or cold.
With some salad and a glass of crunchy wine.
