A glut of Courgettes…

p7100019.jpg As I mentioned before our Courgettes/Zucchini are growing great.

I’m probably going to have a few available every week so I’m going to try to use some new recipes I sourced.

I got this little book earlier in the year at our library book sale (it was an optimistic choice in the hope that I would need it).

I’m glad I have it really as my request for suggested recipes here didn’t yield as much as my plants have 😉

The other night I made one of our old favourites.

It’s one of those recipes where you just pile it all in and I never really did work it out in amounts so just adapt for the size of your own family.

Bacon & Tomato Pasta.





1 Tin of tomatoes

1 teaspoon of mixed herbs.

Cooked Pasta

Fry off the Bacon & Onion, then add the mushrooms and Courgette (Zuchinni). Add the tinned tomatoes and herbs and leave to simmer. When ready to serve add the cooked pasta.

  1. Sounds good! I love courgettes.
    Remember about Ratatuille. (think that’s how you spell it)

    Courgettes – cut big
    Good quality tinned tomatoes (1-2 tins depending on your amounts for freezing)
    green peppers cut chunkily
    2 cloves of garlic
    onions cut chunkily
    Tomatoes (preferably of the on-the-vine variety) maybe 4 large ones

    Fry off all veg with the garlic in extra virgin olive oil.
    Add your tinned tomatoes.
    Allow to stew until veg are soft.
    S & P

    Serve with a crusty. Freezes well.


  2. P.S
    Courgettes simply cut into rounds and fried until browned in a little oil are sooo delicious!! Just serve them with a good old Chicken dinner.
