Grease four ramekins. Blend the peppers in a food processor until smooth. Add the eggs, parsley, Parmesan, cream and seasoning. Process for 2 minutes. Heat the olive oil and cook the courgette slices over a low heat until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain on paper towels, then combine them with the pepper mixture and divide the mixture between the ramekins. Place the ramekins in a baking pan half-filled with hot water. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool overnight. SAUCE: Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth. If sauce is too thick, thin with a little stock. TO SERVE: Divide the sauce between 4 serving plates. Turn out the mousses on to the plates and garnish with the courgettes, rocket and dill. Serves: 4 Preparation time: 1 hour plus cooling time Cooking time: 40 minutes Oven temperature: 190 ºC
