Chilli Courgette Pasta

Chilli Courgette Pasta
The Chilli Courgette Pasta is serve in a ceramic bowl on a dark colored table.

So last week I published this raw Pine Nut Parmesan recipe, because I wanted to use it in another couple of recipes.  Here’s the first of those recipes.

The combo of the pine nut parmesan and the tomatoes is exquisite  enough on its own, but when you add in the chilli the capers and the lemon, get ready to add this recipe to your ‘favourites list’.

I’ve put this recipe into the Mains Courses category, because it may be enough for you as it is, but it can also be added to with some avocado, or some cooked quinoa, or maybe even some oven baked cauliflower.  In fact, now I’m talking about it, that’s exactly what I want to do!
