1. Heat the oil and garlic in a large frying pan over a low heat. Add the courgettes, season and cook gently for 10 minutes, until the courgettes are soft and starting to break down. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water according to pack instructions.
2. Just before draining the pasta, turn the heat under the courgettes up to high and add a ladleful of the pasta water to the courgettes, followed by the drained pasta. Quickly add the lemon zest and juice, mint and parmigiano reggiano; toss together until well combined. Divide between 4 bowls or plates, adding dollops of the ricotta.
