Pasta with Courgettes and Herbed Cream Cheese

ingredients

serves 4
400 g (14 oz) pasta
4 courgettes, diced
1 lemon, half thinly sliced and juice of the other half
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
l red chilli, finely chopped
6 tbsp (90 ml) 3 fl oz cream cheese, whipped until smooth
10 g (1/4 oz) parsley, roughly chopped
salt and pepper
olive oil

to serve:

parmesan
handful torn basil leaves
4 slices pancetta or thin streaky bacon, grilled until crisp

method

1. Cook the pasta according to instructions on the packet.

2. Saute the shallot, garlic and chilli in olive oil and add the lemon slices.

3. Add the diced courgettes, and a little more oil if necessary, and fry until golden brown.

4. Add the chopped parsley, cream cheese and lemon juice. Stir until the cheese has melted into the mixture to make a sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Toss with the pasta and serve.

The dish is delicious just scattered with parmesan and basil but for compulsive carnivores serve the crisp bacon on the side.
