Spaghetti With Courgette, Garlic, Lemon and Herbs

Spaghetti With Courgette, Garlic, Lemon and Herbs


  • 200g spaghetti
  • 1 large courgette, grated or julienned
  • The zest of a small lemon
  • A good squeeze of the lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Olive oil
  • Chopped fresh herbs (I used chives and mint – a few good pinches)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Add the spaghetti to a large pan of boiling salty water and cook according to packet instructions. 
  2. When the spaghetti only has a couple of minutes left, add a glug of olive oil to a large frying pan.
  3. Add the crushed garlic and fry for a minute or two until softened and fragrant but not browned. 
  4. Add in the courgette, lemon zest and a few good pinches of chopped herbs and cook for a few minutes until the courgette is nice and soft. You can add a splash of the pasta cooking water if it starts to stick together. 
  5. Drain the spaghetti, and drizzle it with a bit of oil olive while it is still in the colander. 
  6. Add the spaghetti to the courgette pan, add a good squeeze of lemon juice and season well with salt and pepper.
  7. Add more herbs / lemon juice to taste and serve.
