Mixed Marrow Pasta

I love patty pans and Dave loves baby marrows so when I saw a pack of mixed marrows at Woolworths I bought it, hoping to satisfy both of our taste buds. These were turned into a lovely mixed marrow pasta sauce, perfect for Tandy Tuesday.

Makes enough for: 2 people
All Rights Reserved: An original recipe from Lavender and Lime


  • 175 g pasta of your choice, cooked to package instructions
  • 15 mls lemon infused olive oil
  • 125 g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 stalk rosemary, leaves picked and chopped
  • 2 baby marrows, sliced
  • 2 patty pans, sliced
  • 2 sun dried tomatoes, sliced
  • 30 mls crème fraîche


  • while the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a frying pan
  • add the mushrooms and as soon as they start cooking, add the garlic and the rosemary
  • add the marrows, the patty pans and the sun dried tomatoes
  • loosen the sauce with some of the pasta water
  • add the crème fraîche
  • toss through the pasta and serve
The ingredients I used for my Mixed Marrow Pasta:
  • lemon infused olive oil: if you don’t have this, use ordinary olive oil. If you have some lemons, add a generous amount of the peel while you heat the oil.
  • mushrooms are a staple ingredient in my fridge and I usually buy sliced ones for cooking as they are most cost effective
  • garlic is a pantry ingredient I cannot be without. Buy nice firm cloves and don’t worry if they sprout. If it bothers you, plant them to harvest your own crop
  • I have a rosemary plant in my garden. They grow very big which means you can trim them into stunning shapes if you want to
  • marrows, zucchini or courgettes are a vegetable both Dave and I love. We often braai these straight over the fire, with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper
  • patty pans are also known as summer squash. These are not Dave’s favourites and I no longer buy them
  • I love sun dried tomatoes and will use the oil in my salad dressing when the jar is empty
  • crème fraîche is another staple ingredient which I prefer to sour cream

    1. it is so seldom that Dave and I have a completely meatless meal as in our house, bacon seems to creep into the dishes I plan on being meatless 🙂
