Parmesan and pine nut courgette rosti

These patties are delicious served with grilled chicken, steak,  ham or salmon.  A home-made tomato sauce is also an excellent idea. Or perhaps cream cheese spread on top as part of a packed lunch.
You could spice them up with chili. If you wanted to add onion, it would be best to finely chop in a processor first or soften the onions by pre frying them.

  • Makes about four
