  2. 2 Put in a bowl; season.
  3. 3 Mix 1 tbsp oil with the lemon juice, mint and chilli.
  4. 4 Toss through the courgettes. Cover and marinate for 30 mins.
  5. 5 Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, dill and lemon zest, and season with salt.
  6. 6 Put the courgettes in a serving dish and dot with the ricotta mixture.
  7. 7 Scatter over the pine nuts, mint leaves, rocket and extra chilli flakes, and drizzle with the remaining oil. Serve with rocket leaves.

    Lovely light summery recipe and a great way to use up the yellow and green courgettes from my garden. I had it with some crusty ciabatta to soak up the marinade.
