Make it into a bake
Put the griddled courgettes into a medium baking dish and toss with the remaining ingredients, plus 4 tbsp crème fraîche. Top with a little more Parmesan and, when ready to serve, grill or bake


  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan or, if griddling. Rub the courgettes in the oil, season, then fry or griddle for 3-5 mins on each side until softened and golden. Transfer to a serving bowl, then toss with the Parmesan, lemon zest and plenty of black pepper. Drizzle with an extra drizzle of olive oil, if liked. Try serving with grilled chicken or fish.
