Courgette pasta with chili, garlic & parmesan

Recipe by Wendy-Bob

PREP TIME: 10 mins

TOTAL TIME: 25 mins


2 medium courgettes
4 garlic cloves
2 red chillies ( 1 if you prefer it less hot)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
150 g penne pasta
1 teaspoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)

In a large pan of salted water, put the pasta on to boil.
Grate the courgettes/zucchini, chop or mince the garlic, finely chop the chilli and grate the Parmesan.
Melt the teaspoon of butter in a large frying pan and add the garlic.
Cook for a couple of minutes and then add the chilli and courgette/zucchini.
Leave to cook for 10-15mins stirring occasionally. NB. You want to cook everything but not really brown any of it off.
Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan.
When the pasta is cooked to your liking, drain well and stir through a tablespoon of olive oil if desired.
Plate up the pasta and serve with the courgette/zucchini mixture on top.
