Prep time: 5 mins minutes

Cook time: 15 mins minutes

Preparation

1. Cook the pasta to pack instructions, adding the broccoli to the pan for the last 3 mins. Drain well, reserving 3 tbsp of the cooking water.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a low heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 mins, then stir in the garlic, crushed chillies and fennel seeds. Increase the heat to medium and cook for 3 mins.

3. Add the courgette and some seasoning. Fry for 3 mins or until the courgette is golden.

4. Add the pasta, broccoli and reserved water to the frying pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the crème fraîche, lemon juice and cheese (if using). Season with black pepper to serve.

Tip: Sausages are also great in this dish: remove the meat from the skins and fry before adding the courgette.
