Step by step
Dollop a few spoonfuls of sauce in the bottom of a lasagne dish. Top with overlapping ribbons of courgette (use your veg peeler).
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, lemon juice and zest. Scatter with grated parmesan and basil and torn mozzarella. Repeat. Repeat again, but skip the courgettes.
