I haven't posted much about my veg box for the last few weeks because we have been mainly ordering the salad box. During the recent heatwave we could only really face salad! Now that the British summer has returned to whatever passes for normal these days, we are back to "proper" veg.
Courgettes, (known as zucchini in most countries), have been featuring heavily recently. Usually I have to hide or disguise them in some way - DD is not a fan. However, as she is away at camp at the moment, I decided to let them take centre stage with a Hugh F-W recipe available here.
It is a simple pasta bake. Don't be deceived; it takes a fair while to make as you have to gently soften the courgettes for half an hour. It needs a good amount of seasoning otherwise it is a little bland but would probably be really tasty with some added sun-dried tomatoes, bacon or chorizo. I have never bought sun-dried tomatoes; I must find a method of making them which works in the British unpredictable climate.
One of the main selling points of this recipe is that it uses about one courgette per person; very handy in a glut!
