  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan or, if griddling. Rub the courgettes in the oil, season, then fry or griddle for 3-5 mins on each side until softened and golden. Transfer to a serving bowl, then toss with the Parmesan, lemon zest and plenty of black pepper. Drizzle with an extra drizzle of olive oil, if liked. Try serving with grilled chicken or fish.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Served with pan fried lemon sole and home grown spinach cooked with cream and a touch of garlic made this Good Friday meal so special. Yum.

Made a nice change. I didn't have a lemon but it definitely needs it to zing it up.

I am making the baked version tonight as a side to pork escalopes, but I will add a chopped red onion to it.

Made this the stove-top way, had a little too much oil due to scaling of the recipe, but it was good anyway. What temp & time is suggested for baking a bit in the oven?

I made the oven version - delicious, a great way to perk up a simple chicken or fish dish.

A great tasty way to use up the glut of courgettes I grew in my greenhouse last year!

A great example of "simple but good", the parmesan really pepped up the courgettes.
