Zucchini and Tomato Bake

1 zucchini
2-3 tomatoes
salt, pepper
herbs (we used basil and oregano)
1 tbsp olive oil

Slice zucchini and tomatoes. Grease an oven proof dish and put a layer of zucchini on the bottom. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs. Add a layer of tomatoes. Continue until all zucchini and tomato slices are in the dish. Drizzle the oil on top. Cover and bake in 200 Celsius degrees 30-45 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Remove the lid in the end of the baking if it looks like there’s too much liquid in the dish.
