Courgette, Feta and Leftover Spaghetti Frittata


Courgette, Feta and Leftover Spaghetti Frittata
My in-laws allotment is making up for last year. They are literally drowning in produce - this weekend they had a bit of a courgette situation so kindly donated some to us, along with beetroot, broad beans and french beans!

As I had some spaghetti leftover from the night before I decided to make a spaghetti frittata with the courgettes and some feta I had in the fridge. Frittata's are so easy to make and I often take leftover slices to work for lunch the next day.

Luscious Lemon Shortbread Bars


Luscious Lemon Shortbread Bars

The combination of buttery shortbread and tangy lemon is very moreish. In fact just thinking about them makes me salivate. They are so easy to make - perfect for a summer bake sale or picnic. You could even tart them up to serve at an al fresco dinner party - just serve larger slices with a little more grated lemon zest on top and finish with a dollop of clotted cream. Be warned, you can just keep eating these!
