Lay the vegetables in layers, along with the herbs, the frozen peas and chopped onions and garlic
Pour the tomato sauce over it, or lay slices of peeled tomatoes and the olives on the top.
Mix the creme fraiche with the water, flour, instant soup, nutmeg and pepper and shortly boil up (also works in the microwave)
Lay the croquettes (frozen) on the top of the vegetables and pour the creme fraiche sauce over them.
Top with the grated cheese mixed together
Bake in the oven at 180° / 160° (fan) for about 60 minutes on the bottom of the oven. The cheese should be crisply baked and the vegetables cooked through. You dont need to pre-heat the oven.
