A perfect accompaniment to a pasta or risotto dish.


  • 2 courgettes (450g) cut very thinly
  • 1 red chilli (15g) deseeded & finely chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 8-10 tbsp primadonna olive oil, be generous
  • 90 g lovilio parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper


  • Scatter the courgette slices on a large platter followed by the chilli on top.
  • Next pour the lemon juice followed by the olive oil and then the parmesan shavings (use a vegetable peeler to create the shavings) over the courgette and chilli.
  • Season generously and serve.


It's really important to cut the courgettes as thinly as possible... use the thinnest blade on your food processor to do the job.
