One of my favourite side dishes now. I used yellow and green courgettes which made it extra dingy!

Rather bitter and slimy.

Lovely! Agree with other comments that it'd be nice with chicken or goats cheese as a main dish.

Surprisingly good! I used yellow courgettes and mixed while the courgette was still hot so the spinach wilted, and also added a squeeze of lemon juice. Will make again.

Very nice. I added some grilled halloumi on top to bulk it up to a light lunch and added some of the lemon juice too.

Really easy and tasty side dish. Good way of spicing up the courgettes because they can be pretty dull if you just boil or steam them.
