Baked Corguette

This is a dish which was passed to us by an Italian who described it as a typical Italian appetiser, although strangely, he couldn’t think of a name for it!. It uses all the traditional flavours you’d expect, to create something symbolic of Italian cooking, while remaining both light and fresh at the same time.
