Tagliatelle with courgettes, tomatoes and basil

Another quick, easy and summery dish.

All you need is some pasta, fresh tagliatelle was what I used, one large thinly-sliced courgette per person, some halved cherry tomatoes, chopped parsley and basil, finely-chopped or grated garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and some cheese for grating (I used Provolone, but Parmesan is fine).

While you are cooking the pasta, heat some olive oil in a pan and sauté the courgettes until they are soft but not coloured. Then add the tomatoes, garlic and herbs and cook for a few minutes longer. Season and keep warm.

Drain the pasta, saving some of the cooking water, and add it to the courgettes and tomatoes. Add some of the cooking water in the pan and stir.

Serve with more fresh black pepper and grated cheese on top.
