- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 fennel bulb, finely sliced
- 2 large potatoes, finely sliced
- 1 courgette, sliced

- Handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped

- Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Mix the onion, fennel, potatoes, courgette, red pepper and parsley in a bowl with the flour and plenty of seasoning.
- Spread a third of the mixture in the bottom of a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish and scatter over half the ham. Dollop over half the ricotta and a third of the mozzarella. Add another layer of vegetables, then layer up more ham, ricotta and mozzarella, saving the last third of the mozzarella for adding later.
- Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, then remove the foil and scatter on the Parmesan and remaining mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes until golden, then serve.
