We’ve been growing an array of vegetables this year in our little kitchen garden. It’s been so much fun and the children love pulling and picking what we’ve grown.

The peas are almost finished now so we decided to pick as many as we could to put away for fresh peas and decided to use the rest in a nice summer pasta.  We also picked onion, carrot and courgette.

We washed everything off and the children shelled and ate peas as I grated the courgettes and cut the carrot and onion.

Put a large pot of water on to boil and add a dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt.  Cook pasta to your taste.

In a pan pour a slug of olive oil and brown the onions before adding the carrots.  Then for the grated courgettes.  I blanch the peas and them throw them in to the mix for a minute before adding a squeeze of lemon and if you have, a good table spoon of cream or creme fraiche.

Drain the pasta before spooning it in to the pan of delicious vegetables and coating.  And it’s as simple as that.  Summer pasta in 10 minutes.  I find that even the fussiest of children will eat this if they help with the process.  I always say, you picked this or you made this…
