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.
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.
