Lemon Zucchini Pasta/Lemony Courgette

A few days back, I was scrolling through the TV and I came across Jamie Oliver’s food show. After switching channels, I finally settled on that and watched all three recipes that he made. One of the recipes was Lemony Courgette, which I have named as Lemon Mint Zucchini Pasta. I tried with no plans to put it here, but it was worth tasting and sharing with you all. It tastes amazing; not spicy, but flavorful with the freshness of mint, Lemon zest, and Lemon juice. I loved it, you too try out once. Thanks Jamie Oliver for giving me one more pasta recipe in my list.

Chop both types of zucchini into thin juliennes and keep it aside for a while.

Take a pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil in it and let it heat at low flame.

Add chili flakes and after giving a little toss, add both types of Zucchini to it.

Sprinkle some salt and let it cook for around 3 minutes with an intermediate tossing.

Later add lemon zest, roughly hand chopped mint leaves and let their flavor infused into the above mixture for a few minutes with a continuous stirring.

By this time, your pasta will be cooked, so directly transfer pasta to the Zucchini pan after draining water.

Squeeze a lemon, add parmesan, toss it and sprinkle salt-pepper to it as per the taste.

Grate more parmesan and drizzle olive oil before munching this delicious Lemon Zucchini pasta.
