Courgette pasta bake

This courgette pasta bake is a really light and healthy dish. It does not involve a fried base of vegetables such as onions, nor the inclusion of béchamel sauce. Instead, it includes a generous helping of grated courgette, making it both clever and healthy. If you don't know how to get your children to eat courgettes, for example, this is the perfect answer: they won't be able to resist a steaming dish of succulent baked pasta - they'll devour the whole thing, even if it is full of greens!
