  1. Coarsely grate the courgettes then place them in a clean tea towel and squeeze dry. Meanwhile, wash the broccoli and prepare by trimming the base of the spear. Chop in diagonal slices about 3cm long with the leaves.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the courgettes and fry for 7 mins on a medium heat. Stir occasionally. Add in the broccoli, chilli flakes, walnuts and lemon zest and continue to cook for a further 3 mins. Season with salt and stir.

  3. In the meantime, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water for 8-10 mins or until just tender and 'al dente'. Drain in a colander. Add the spaghetti to the frying pan and toss all together on a medium heat for 30 secs. Serve immediately with cheese on top.
