A couple of months ago we planted some tiny courgette plants, I have watched them survive a major aphid and caterpillar attack , seen flowers grow and wilt and finally they are large enough to eat.
I wanted a supper dish when courgettes could shine We picked four 4 inch long courgettes and dinner was ready in minutes from just one pan. The frittata of sweet onions and courgettes and salty parmesan was delicious. This may be the summer of the frittata from the tweet declaiming a courgette onslaught it will definitely be a summer of courgettes
