4 chillies, whole
700g (roughly 4 cups) cherry tomatoes, whole
Salt and pepper
1 - 1/2 cups olives
Handful of basil, lemon thyme and parsley each
1kg (2lbs) zucchini, made into noodles
Preheat oven to 180C/360F. Place lemon, garlic and chillies an a roasting pan, cover with olive oil and place in oven for ten minutes.
