Lemon Pasta with Courgette and Feta

Whilst browsing for courgette recipes a couple of weeks ago, I cam across this delicious sounding pasta dish from Tracy at Sugar Crafter. It looked so simple and included two of my favourite ingredients, lemon and cheese, and courgettes of which I have way too many and it lived up to my expectations. I had it for lunch on Saturday and it was so good. It reminded me of the beautiful summer we've had which sadly now seems to have disappeared.

I am entering this into Presto Pasta Nights, this week hosted by Abby of eat the right stuff, check out her blog on Friday for the round up.

Lemon Pasta with Courgette and Feta
(Serves 1)

2 handfuls farfalle pasta
1 small courgette
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
1 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup feta cheese
Fresh parsley

Chop up the garlic cloves into small chunks, and slice the courgette. Quarter the courgette slices.

Cook the pasta according to the directions on the packet.

In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter and olive oil over low heat. Add in the minced garlic and lemon juice, and then sauté for 1-2 minutes or until the garlic is tender.

Add in the zucchini and cook 3-4 minutes longer until the courgette begins to brown and has soaked in the lemon flavor.

Toss the lemon-zucchini mixture with the cooked pasta, and then sprinkle the feta cheese over the top. Scatter chopped parsley over the top.


  1. lemon, cheese and courgette are absolute favourites of mine too - thanks for sharing this with ppn

  2. An outstanding combination. I love lemons and usually have lots of them from our tree, so will definitely try this dish.
