Creamy Courgette & Bacon Pasta

Ingredients

1 tsp olive oil
150g diced pancetta or smoked bacon lardons
4 courgettes, coarsely grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
handful freshly grated parmesan
200g crème fraîche
300g tagliatelle

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and sizzle the pancetta or bacon for about 5 mins until starting to crisp. Turn up the heat and add the grated courgette to the pan. Cook for 5 mins or until soft and starting to brown then add the garlic and cook for a minute longer. Season and set aside. Cook the tagliatelle according to the pack instructions and scoop out a cupful of cooking water. Drain the tagliatelle and tip into the frying pan with the bacon and courgette. Over a low heat toss everything together with the crème fraiche and half the Parmesan adding a splash of pasta water too if you need to loosen the sauce. Season to taste and serve twirled into bowls with the remaining Parmesan scattered over.

We have had a veg box for many years and now a salad box. Delighted with the flavour of all the vegetables. Lovely wide range of greens and, boy, sometimes the salad leaves have been hot! Reliable and pleasant delivery.
