I came up with this recipe trying to decide what to do with some courgettes that I bought on impulse when ordering groceries from Waitrose. I’d never cooked anything with courgettes before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The outcome exceeded my expectations, so I’m sharing the recipe with you.

 

1Ingredients

300g pasta (any kind of pasta will do. I used wholewheat penne)

3 medium sized courgettes – thinly sliced

3 carrots

a small onion

25g of butter

150ml dry white wine

60g of single cream (can be replaced with milk for a lighter sauce)

50g parmesan

50g cheddar or edam

2

Instructions

Cut the vegetables in thin slices. Cook the pasta according to package instructions and drain.

Preheat the over at 195-200 degrees.

Melt the butter over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and courgettes.  Add the wine and lower the heat. Occasionally stir. Cook for about 30 minutes. Cooking time depends on how thin the slices are.

Add the cream (or milk) and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes.Return the pasta to the pan and heat throgh. Let the mix combine for a few minutes and then move to oven dish. Sprinkle with the cheese and put the dish in the over. Leave it for 10-15 minutes until the cheese on top is brown. Enjoy!
