  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the pasta shells, salt and 1 tbsp oil and cook for 12-15 minutes until the pasta is tender.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, add the vegetables and cook quickly for 5-7 minutes, turning them frequently so that they do not brown. Preheat the grill to high.
  3. Add the cooked, drained pasta, lemon juice, cream, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Stir well, then quickly pour this mixture into a gratin dish.
  5. Cover it with the grated parmesan and grill until the cheese is golden brown. Serve immediately.
