Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Cook the pancetta or bacon until crisp, add the courgettes, then sizzle for 4 mins until golden. Add the garlic and chilli to the courgettes, cook for 1 min, then sprinkle with sugar and splash in the vinegar. Tip over the canned tomatoes, turn up the heat, season with salt and pepper, then simmer for 10 mins.
  2. While the sauce is simmering, cook the linguine, then drain. Toss the pasta through the sauce, then scatter with parsley and drizzle with a little more olive oil.
