Courgette, Herb and Rice Filo Pie & Nigella!

I've been AWOL - sorry! Its not that I haven't been cooking, I have, but with everyone going back to school/nursery and me going back to work after the holidays I just haven't had any spare time to blog. We are back into the groove now though so I promise to have some new recipes (and competitions) on the blog for you shortly, I suspect with Nigellissima inspiration. Well, I couldn't have an incomplete Nigella cookbook collection could I.....

The recipe here is not a Nigella recipe, but instead has it's origins at River Cottage. I've tinkered as usual and varied the herbs that Hugh used. It's filling, hearty and hubby didn't even notice the lack of flesh!
