Courgetti Spaghetti

This is so simple there is no need to write a recipe, but I just had to share it with you.  Whilst trying to cut down on carbs I came across this alternative for spaghetti thanks to the fantastic Madeleine Shaw.

Courgettes.

Yes I know I was skeptical and in my head I was hoping some miracle occurred when they were thinly sliced to make it taste like pasta…it didn’t.

However, it’s brilliant.

Thinly/ thickly/ however you want slice the courgette.  We used a cheese grater for thinner slices and potato peeler for larger slicers.  You can buy a special spiralizer thing but I’ve never been afraid of a bit of man power.  One courgette is enough for one person.

Then go crazy with whatever topping you fancy.  We went the whole hog and made a bolognese.

It wasn’t pasta, but it was delicious and a far more interesting way to eat courgettes.  I didn’t feel at all bloated after, so this is now my go to staple for spaghetti.

On our next vlog there should be a snippet of me trying it for the first time for the real review!  If you haven’t visited our new YouTube channel yet, click here and go have a little visit. We’d love it if you’d subscribe to our channel.

  1. Hello again! We have swapped rice for cauliflower which I works really well too, put it in the blender until it looks like couscous and then microwave it for 5 mins. It smells a but funky when it comes out but tastes good once mixed with chilli or curry etc. I’m up in London this weekend seeing Katie, are you around at all? Xx
