This is one my brother cooked us and it was lovely - I think he got it straight from a recipe book but not sure which one.

Quick, easy and delicious, I used basil from the garden and I always tend to have zucchini since it seems to be available all year round (here) and quite inexpensive. Lovely pasta dish for an excellenet midweek suppwer, particularly when I had come home quite late and it was good to put supper on the table in no time at all! Thank you Karen, made for PAC Spring 2013
