Clean accurately the courgettes and cut the ends. Use a peeler to slice them lengthwise (leaving the peel) in order to make the “tagliatelle”. Boil half a pot of salted water and prepare another pot half full of cold water. Toast the sesame seeds in a pan for a few seconds. Add lemon juice and butter and cook over medium heat. When the salted water is boiling, cook the tagliatelle for exactly one minute, then drain them and put into the pot with cold water for another minute. Drain again. Put the tagliatelle in the pan with the sesame seed dressing and heat them for a few seconds, gently mixing. When dishing out, add fresh basil and grated Parmesan cheese.
