Courgette and bacon spaghetti main

Serves 2

5 minutes preparation, 12 minutes to cook


  • 150g spaghetti
  • 1 large courgette (about 325g)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 pack of allumettes or lardons (75g)
  • 100ml crème fraiche (half fat is fine)
  • Juice of half a lemon


  • Kettle
  • Large pan for spaghetti
  • Another saucepan for the sauce
  • Cooking spoon
  • Grater


Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of very salty boiling water.

In a separate saucepan fry the courgette and garlic with a little bit of oil (a lot of water will come out of the courgettes so fry is an optimistic term) for about 5 minutes till soft.  Then tip in the allumettes and continue to fry for another 2-3 minutes.

Finally add the crème fraiche and lemon juice then give it all a good stir with a healthy dose of salt (the allumnettes are salty but it’s amazing just how much courgettes need!).  Add the pasta to the sauce, combine and serve.
