For 4 persons

  • 100 g walnuts

  • bunch of parsley

  • 100 ml olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 6 courgettes

  • 100 g parmesan

  • 50 g pine nuts

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • salt and pepper

  1. For the pesto, mix all together walnuts, garlic cloves, roughly chopped parsley and 100ml of olive oil in a mixer.

  2. Peel the courgettes. With a peeler cut thin slices lengthwise until reaching the middle with the seeds. Leave them away.

  3. In a frying pan heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the sliced courgettes. Cook them for 5 minutes. It is better if they are not too soft. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. In a small frying pan on low heat add the pine nuts until they become darker. Mix them so they are dark both sides.

  5. To serve, put in a plate a portion of the courgettes, top with a spoon of pesto, grated parmesan and toasted pine nuts.
