    Look at my lovely home grown meal!!

    Put some pasta on to boil.

    Fry onions and garlic in fry light until soft and add thinly sliced courgettes and garden peas. Add some lemon zest and lots of freshly ground black pepper and cook gently.

    Toss the cooked pasta in with the veg adding some of the pasta water and stir in some fresh parsley (mint if you wish) and parmesan (syns) if required.

    Absolutely gorgeous and everything except the pasta was out of the garden!!

    That looks delicious, I felt as though I could take the lettuce right off the plate, well done on your garden produce and your recipe. X

    With this warm weather and the downpours of rain we're getting now, home grown veg will be growing like the clappers! My butternut squash has tripled in size in the last couple days. It's amazing. I do so love this time of year!! :D

    OMG you mean you haven't got a pasta tree yet! They are brilliant but go a bit soggy when it rains lol.

    The meal looked lovely though and am pleased you enjoyed the home produce, much better than shop bought anyday.
