courgette and parma ham tagliatelle

i’m revisiting lots of old favourites at the moment – when i update the column on the right each month i am reminded of what i have cooked in previous years and often find things i love but have completely forgotten about!

the angela hartnett pea and parma pasta recipe is not something i’ve forgotten but it probably is a year since i made it – it’s such a summery dish you really do need warm weather and a cold glass of white wine to appreciate it at its best.

this was a variation, using courgettes in place of peas (i fried the courgette in a little butter, adding the garlic when it was almost done; you can then follow the original recipe). i’ve also made a version with asparagus. all are worth trying if you want something quick, light and delicious to celebrate a summer’s day.

i'm sharing this dish with helen from fuss free flavours who is hosting this week's presto pasta nights.

First time visiting your blog. This pasta with ham and courgette looks very summery.

I love the summery dish...I mean dishes. They're all wonderful and I love the way you remind us of all your earlier fantastic dishes - pasta or no.

Thanks for sharing this with Presto Pasta Nights.
