  • serves 2
  • A little effort

Fresh and easy pasta dish for two. The courgette, garlic and lemon sauce is ready in the time it takes to cook the linguine. Mix in creamy mascarpone and serve.



  • linguine 200g
  • courgettes 2, finely sliced
  • olive oil
  • garlic 1 clove, finely sliced
  • chives small bunch, chopped
  • lemon 1, zested and juiced
  • mascarpone 3 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Cook the pasta, then drain, keeping some of the cooking water.

  • Step 2

    Fry the courgette slices in a little olive oil, turning up the heat so they brown around the edges. Add the garlic and chives and cook for a minute, then add the lemon zest and juice and season well. Stir this into the linguine, then add the mascarpone and a splash of pasta water and toss everything together before serving.
