We had some courgettes and prosciutto kicking around in the fridge the other day which really needed using up and I was trying to think of what to do with them. We nearly always have courgettes in the fridge so I’m always after new courgette recipes.

I considered making my courgette and prosciutto risotto but I was really craving pasta so I decided to take some of the flavours from that dish and put them all into a one pot pasta.

Remember when one pot pastas were all the rage a few years ago? One of the very first recipes on this blog was, in fact, a one pot pasta with painfully awful photos I haven’t got around to retaking yet!

But still, on the whole, one pot pastas are completely delicious and so super easy they just couldn’t get much better!

So this courgette & prosciutto one pot pasta starts off with courgette (zucchini for you Americans), mushrooms, pasta, thyme, salt, pepper and pasta all in a pot with chicken stock.

Bring it to a boil and let it cook for about 20 minutes until the pasta is ready to eat and all the liquid has been absorbed.

Now you could just stop there but I didn’t want this to be just any one pot pasta. No, this is where it gets a bit special.

You will have preheated the grill (broiler) so once the liquid is absorbed and the pasta is cooked, remove the pot from the heat and tear some fresh mozzarella across the top followed by a scattering of prosciutto.

Put the whole thing under the grill and let it cook until the cheese is bubbling and the prosciutto is a little crisped. Now you’re ready to eat!

    Good thing you said what courgette was because I was sitting here all kinds of confused. This looks great and that gooey cheese is perfection.
