I sometimes worry that my blog gives a misleading impression of civilised adults and well-trained children sitting down together to eat. I guess that's what we aim for, but the reality tends to be closer to the photo below - abandoned plates on the table, open cupboard doors, children lurking behind one's back and the like.
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp salt
good splash of cava (or dry white wine)
handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped
- Top and tail and wash the courgettes, cut them crosswise into 5 cm segments, and then lengthwise into chunky matchsticks. Peel and finely chop the garlic.
- Put the courgette and garlic in a large pan with plenty of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and sautee gently until the courgette is done but still has a little bite.
- Add the cava and cook for another minute or so, then add the basil and a little freshly ground black pepper.
