ragout of mushroom and courgette

courgette and mushroom ragout on a bed of noodles
Not sure where I got this recipe from; it exists as a snippet in my scrapbook. It is a delicious creamy and decadent way to eat zucchini :)

10 oz button mushrooms, wiped and halved
1 medium onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 medium courgettes
1oz butter
5 fl.oz double cream
5 fl.oz white wine
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped
2 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Cut the courgettes into quarters lengthways and then dice into 1cm chunks. Fry in olive oil for two minutes, remove and set aside.
  2. Melt butter, then fry onion, mushrooms and garlic for 7-8 minutes. 
  3. Add the wine and leave to reduce for 8-10 minutes. Add tarragon at this step if using dried herb.
  4. Add courgettes, stir and season. Heat through.
  5. Stir in cream and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add fresh tarragon and serve on bed of fettucine or similar pasta.
Serves 4. Bon appetit :)
