Method

  1. To make the gremolata, mix the garlic, lemon zest and juice with the parsley and some seasoning.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the broccoli and cook for 2-3 mins until just tender. Use a slotted spoon to remove, then set aside. Bring the water back to the boil, add the pasta and cook following pack instructions.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the courgettes and cook over a high heat for 3-4 mins until starting to turn golden, tip in the broccoli and continue to cook for 1 min until warmed through.
  4. Drain the pasta, reserving about 2 tbsp of the cooking water, then add pasta and cooking water to the pan with the vegetables and the gremolata. Mix well and serve.

I felt it was a bit dry and needs some white wine or something to moisten the pasta. My husband enjoyed it, so I will try it again, but will add more lemon juice to give it more zing, and maybe some chopped chilli.

Nothing special, but a good weekday recipe.

Used lemon juice instead of zest - fresh and tasty and perfect for summer.
