What’s happening with the courgettes in our garden?

Although courgettes are a real local ingredient I don’t seem to manage to have my own harvest. I bought healthy plants, planted them on the compost ground, watered them every day and still 😭, not even flowers.

Courgettes are, next to tomatoes, my preferred vegetables. The following pasta recipe is delicious and super easy.

For 2p, fry 8-10 courgettes flowers in a drizzle of olive oil. Remove the flowers from the pan. Roast 2 table spoons of almonds in a dry pan. Grind them roughly.

Chop and fry 4 garlic cloves and 1 chili in a drizzle of olive oil. Add 700 grams of small courgettes cubes and 1 teaspoon of dried basil. Boil a nice shaped pasta al dente. Keep some of the boiling water.

Mix pasta, vegetables, 150 grams of smoked salmon and the courgettes flowers. Taste, add pepper and salt.

Finish with lemon juice, fresh basil and the grinded nuts. Add some of the pasta water if necessary.
