    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat. Add cherry tomatoes; toss quickly so they just begin to cook but don't lose their shape. Transfer to the bottom of a medium sized casserole dish.
    3. Repeat with the zucchini slices, adding more oil if needed. Layer on top of the tomatoes. Add the crushed garlic to the frying pan and stir, then spoon on top of the zucchini slices in the baking dish.
    4. Mix breadcrumbs with grated cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture evenly on top of zucchini.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until breadcrumbs are golden and vegetables have softened.
