It is absolutely heartwarming when you go to the allotment and for the first time can pick enough for a proper meal. Up till now we have had a few lettuce leaves, some radishes and some fresh herbs.
But this last weekend we were rewarded with some courgettes and a handful of pea pods. So tonight's dinner will be a pasta with a courgette and bacon sauce (with a handful of fresh peas).
I sliced the courgettes really thinly and added them to the pan with the chopped onion and diced bacon. After frying in olive oil I added the tomatoes, pesto and red pepper paste along with seasonings.
Really looking forward to dinner tonight! What will be ready next visit?
