This simple family dish is a real crowd-pleaser: smoked basa baked in crunchy panko breadcrumbs, tricoloured pasta tossed in a satisfying sauce of lemon, garlic & crème fraîche, some (hidden) veg thanks to the grated courgette, and brilliantly quick prep (whew!). The perfect solution for a busy midweek meal.
