Quick Seasonal Pasta!

A few days ago, I harvested our 2 first yellow courgettes from our garden!

I also harvested spring onions & fresh rosemary! That is why, I made this delicious easy seasonal pasta dish! You can make it gluten-free by using GF pasta in here! You can make it vegan by using tofu mince or seitan mince. It is up to you! Enjoy!


Recipe: For at least 4 persons


1 green courgette, cleaned, cut up into rounds, each one cut up into 4

2 yellow courgettes, cleaned, cut up into rounds, each one cut up into 4

1 medium stalk of fresh rosemary, only the green needles, finely chopped

2 spring onions, cleaned,white & green parts used, cut up into rings

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & chopped

egg-free spelt penne, about 350 gr

350 gr of organic pork mince

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

black pepper

Maldon sea salt flakes, crushed

1/3 peeled red onion, cut into strips


  1. Cook your spelt penne according to your packet instructions & drain. Keep warm.
  2. Take a large frying pan & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add a few drizzles of that fruity oil. Add chopped garlic, red onion slices, spearing onions & 1/2 of the chopped rosemary fry for a few minutes, stirring often. Season with some black pepper & some salt. Now, add chopped green & yellow courgettes & the other 1/2 of the chopped fresh rosemary & fry further for about 5-10 minutes or until al dente. Season extra with some black pepper & some sea salt according to your taste. Keep warm.
  3. At the same time, take another frying pan & heat up onto high heat. when hot, add a few drizzles of that same fruity oil & heat up. Now, add pork mince & fry until cooked through. this took me about 8 minutes. Season with dried mixed Provençal herbs, black pepper & some salt. Mix everything together. When all done, mix the mince & veggie mix through the hot pasta & check seasoning on last time. Plate up & enjoy with a loved one! 😉 MMM!

  1. Hello Sophie,

    You’re a good vegetables grower. It looks very delicious and colourful. Enjoy!


  2. Hi Sophie!! Don’t you love pulling fresh veggies from the garden to use for dinner?? We have piles of tomatoes right now and are eating them every night. This pasta looks so fresh and yummy– thanks! xox

      1. No, because at the allotment there is always a big chance for diss-eaeses coming from other farmers around!

      2. I hadn’t thought of that Sophie! Are you almost ready to leave on your vacation?? We head off across country to our daughter’s wedding August 7th. Hope you have a beautiful time! xox
