Rinse the courgette and cut off the ends. Cut them in half lenghtwise. Cook in boiling water until tender, 3-4 minutes. Set aside. Mix your walnut pesto, your ricotta and parmesan together. Scoop the flesh out of the courgettes with a spoon. Be careful not to break the skin! Add a bit of minced flesh to your stuffing, then fill in the courgettes. Place them on an oven tray and stuff them with your ricotta and nutmeg pesto stuffing. Grind your pistachios, nuts and pinenuts in a morter with a pestle. Drizzle the nuts over the courgette, then cook at 200° for 15 minutes. Grill for 5 minutes before serving.
