This one-pan courgette and pea orzotto recipe is our quick and easy take on a classic risotto! We substitute rice for orzo, (a rice-shaped pasta) which cooks faster and is more forgiving! The addition of fresh mint and peas, as well as zesty lemon, make this a perfect weeknight comfort dinner. What else would you need?

Looking for more family dinner ideas? Then this loaded courgette, lentils and feta traybake is perfect! With only 10 minutes of hands-on prep time, and then the oven does the rest of the work for you. All of the flavours from the sundried tomato paste are absorbed by the courgettes. Loaded with creamy feta and drizzled with a lemony tahini dressing. This recipe will soon become a staple in your household. Make it ahead of time and pop it in the oven when you are ready to eat. Delicious!
