Herby Courgette and Mushroom Pasta
This is beyond simple but wanted to share it as it's so delicious and perfect for a mid-week simple supper or a quick lunch. When I had my first ever flatshare one of the guys I lived with made me courgette pasta where he just grated lot's of courgette, cooked it and added pasta and Parmesan, so good and very cheap to! Ive added mushrooms and a cream sauce but it's just as lovely without.
Sliced Chestnut Mushrooms
1 grated courgette
Half a pack of Boursain garlic & Herb Cheese
Freshly milled Pepper & Salt
All you need to do is get your pasta on to boil, grate your courgette and slice your mushrooms. Start by sauteing the mushrooms in a little butter and olive oil until there cooked with a slight caramelization on them as I think they taste nicer like that. Then add your grated courgette and cook for around 4-5 minutes before adding your boursain and stirring it in.
Lastly stir the cooked pasta into the creamy courgette sauce, season and serve, and Im sure you could add a few shavings of Parmesan and it would be extra lovely.
