Summer Courgette Pasta

These beautiful courgettes are the inspiration behind this recipe. I wanted something substantial that would showcase the courgettes’ delicate flavour.

This pasta dish is perfect for summer. It is light and fresh and is great as a pasta salad. The courgettes and are quickly fried in butter and garlic before being tossed with the pasta and plenty of fresh herbs and lemon juice.

If you are not vegan swap the nutritional yeast for a Parmesan style cheese
