Lemony zucchini carbonara with chilli
What you will need:
  • 250g pasta
  • 2 Table spoon Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cup thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1/2 red chilli finely chopped (or a pinch of dried chilli flakes)
  • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 100ml crème fraiche
  • Zest of a large lemon
  • 2 small lemons
  • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve
  • 1 Table spoon chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Morgenster Lemon Enhanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil for drizzling

    How to prepare:
    Cook the pasta until in salted water according to manufacturer’s instructions. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the zucchini and chili for a few minutes, tossing and shaking the pan. When this is cooked, set aside. Get all the other ingredients ready. When the pasta is al dente, drain, reserving 100ml of the cooking liquid. Put the pasta back in the pot with the liquid (off the heat). Add the egg and stir to incorporate. Add all the other ingredients – including the zucchini, stir and put the lid on. This will heat everything through. Adjust seasoning; it needs a good few grinds of black pepper. Serve immediately with more grated Parmesan and a drizzle of the Lemon Enhanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
