September is upon us, kids are about to return to school and nursery (last year before school starts, sniff, sniff) and I hate to say it but it is time to say goodbye to Summer! It’s been a good one and a busy one too. Trying to juggle major decorating project, keeping kids happy and occupied but also trying to breathe, relax and of course don’t forget blogging and other work engagements. It’s been fun, tough at times and also emotional but we saw it till the end and now WELCOME SEPTEMBER!
I thought I would say farewell to Summer 2017 with quick, easy and delicious pasta and my Creamy Broad Beans, Courgette & Broccoli Pasta definitely fits the bill. It’s my Pasta Primavera of late Summer season showcasing beautiful produce. In case you can’t get your hand on fresh broad beans, frozen ones will do just fine. There are still plenty of well priced courgettes about or perhaps you grow your own? And broccoli? Well, we so got used to having it on tap all year round.
A Little Tip!
Just a little tip regarding broad beans. Some of you may find broad beans on a “tough” side (especially at the end of the season). You might want to go to trouble of peeling them (yes you read me right). Peeling shall reveal the most gorgeous and tender green flesh that is anything but tough. I warn you though , it is a bit of a faff but hey, where there is a will there is a way lol. To be honest, I never have a will so we have them as they come (podded of course) but if you are a purist 😉 go ahead.
Without further ado, here it goes!
If you like this lovely pasta why not to try my Spring Lemon and Dill Salmon Pasta with Asparagus and Peas or perhaps Veggie Lentils and Spinach Lasagne (Batch Cooking Recipe)
