  2. Next, heat up the 2 tsp oil in a pan, once hot, add in the chopped courgette and fry until caramelised, whilst stirring occasionally.. 

  3. Before the courgette is finished, add in the garlic, watching closely that it does not brown, then proceed to season with salt and pepper. 

  4. Then add in the cherry tomato halves and wait to soften, when ready transfer out of the pan to set aside. 

  5. Then add in the chopped tomatoes with a splash of water into the same pan, allowing the tomatoes to break down and thicken into a sauce. Don’t be afraid to add a splash of water if it gets dry.

  6. Once you have reached a sauce texture, season the sauce with salt, pepper, sugar, chilli and balsamic vinegar, stirring well.

  7. When ready, add the drained pasta into a bowl, throw in the cherry tomatoes, courgettes, chopped artichoke hearts and olives

  8. Finally, drizzle over the sauce and mix all, garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
