Courgette and Sweet Pepper Carbonara instructions

  1. Prepare the vegetables: half the courgettes lengthways and slice thinly into half moons, finely chop the sweet pepper..

  3. Simultaneously, add some vegetable oil to a large pan or pot and set to a high heat. Add the courgettes, paprika and cayenne pepper and fry for about 5-10 mins until they shrink in size and lose most of their moisture. Stir often to make sure they don't burn.
