  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, bashed with the side of a knife
  • 3 large essential Waitrose Courgettes, cut into rough matchsticks
  • 250g Giuseppe Cocco Tagliatelle
  • ½ lemon, zest and juice
  • ½ x 25g pack mint, leaves torn
  • 25g parmigiano reggiano, grated, plus extra to serve
  • 4 tbsp ricotta
  • chilli flakes, to serve (optional)


  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. Serve immediately with extra grated parmigiano reggiano and chilli flakes, if liked.
