Dinner tonight is grown by? Me .......!

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?
