Pasta with grilled courgette (zucchini), fish and a lemon basil dressing

Today I will give you the recipe for a dish that is delicious for the hot days in summer, but to be honest, I don’t care. I also love ice-cream in winter and heavier dishes in summer…

This recipe is inspired by Sortedfood; Ribboned courgette, lemon and basil tagliatelle.

Photographed this when it was sunny outside some months back. The lighting is so much better than my other pictures from a few days ago. Oh well…

You will need (for 1 person)

How to make it:
1. Put a pan with salted water on the hob and bring it to a boil.
2. Add a generous pinch of salt, your pasta and cook the according to the package.
3. Heat up a griddle pan or grill (to make panini’s in)
4. Cut your courgette as big as your penne.
5. Splash some oil on your grill and add the courgette. Turn regularly (leave some space for your fish!)
