This fresh, lemony pasta tastes like summer in a bowl, even when it’s cold outside. The grassy flavour of courgette meets the crisp bites of toasted pine nuts, all brought together by addictively slippery pappardelle ribbons.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g dried pappardelle (egg free)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 medium courgettes, grated
1 tablespoon pine nuts
2 unwaxed lemons
generous pinch sea salt
generous pinch black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
handful fresh basil leaves

Method

  1. Cook the pappardelle in a large saucepan of boiling water over a high-medium heat for 10 minutes until al dente, then drain.
  2. In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a low-medium heat. Add the onion to the pan, followed by the garlic. Add the courgettes to the pan and increase the heat to medium. Stir frequently to avoid burning and encourage even cooking, and cook for 4–5 minutes. Add the pine nuts and cook for a further minute.
  3. While the courgette is cooking, slice the lemons in half. When the courgettes have softened, squeeze over the juice of each lemon through a sieve, then remove the pan from the heat and season with sea salt and black pepper.
  4. Toss the cooked, drained pappardelle into the courgette and coat evenly. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and scatter over basil leaves. Serve immediately.
