Courgette & lemon linguine
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
The raw, zingy toppings keep this pasta dish light and summery
- STEP 1
Cook the linguine following the pack instructions, then drain quickly so some cooking water is still clinging to the strands.
- STEP 2
Tip back into the cooking pan with the grated courgettes, olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, chillies and most of the basil. Season generously, then use tongs to toss everything together. Scatter with remaining basil leaves and add an extra drizzle of oil, if you like.
SERVE IT COLD
This also makes a great pasta salad to serve with grilled salmon or leftover roast chicken. Just swap the linguine for a pasta shape like farfalle or fusilli, drain well, then mix with the other ingredients and cool before serving – the pasta will absorb the flavours while it cools.
