Garlic linguine with courgette and broccoli

I’ve been super busy lately, work, work, work, work, and more work 😭😭😭😭. Typical freelancer struggles, a couple of months underworking and suddenly all clients come at the time!

Feeling bad that I couldn’t spare much time for this blog and also couldn’t be bothered cooking at all. King and I have been mostly eating pasta, fried rice or anything quick and easy for almost 2 weeks straight. This garlic linguine is one them.

For this recipe, I am using Magda courgette(the only one that is pale green). It is sweeter and denser than the regular courgette, and it is best to grill and sautee. However, this recipe also works with regular courgette.

Ok …. let’s start.

First, halve the courgette, then slice them up thinly at a 45º angle like the picture shows.

Chop the broccoli into very tiny florets.

Boil the linguine in salted water, for timing please follow the instructions on the pasta’s packaging. Rinse them with ice-cold water and shake through a sieve to remove any excess water, set aside.

Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan, add the minced garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes until it turns slightly golden in colour.
