We love this way of using up that most prolific of summer vegetables: zucchini.
One-Pot Pasta with Roquefort and Courgettes
The secret to a successful one-pot pasta: use a high-quality dry pasta and cold water. Dry pasta will hold it's shape and cold water ensures that it doesn't get soft too fast.
- 9 oz bucatini pasta 250g
- 2 small courgettes (zucchini) diced
- 5 oz Roquefort, cut into large chunks 150g
- 1 garlic clove thinly sliced
- 7 fl oz single (light) cream 200ml
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 1 small bunch of parsley
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon rock salt
- 25 fl oz water 750ml
- Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan in the order listed.
- Cook for approximately 15 minutes over a medium heat, stirring regularly. About 2 cm (3/4 in) of cooking liquid should remain at the end.
