Courgetti? Otherwise known as Courgette “spaghetti”.
For those who haven’t heard, the latest thing in food is spiralising. Using a pretty nifty device you can transform everyday vegetables into exciting things. For my birthday this year my Dad bought us a “Super Spiral Schneider”, which apart from being fun to say, was something that unfortunately ended up unused in a cupboard. I got the idea of creating spiral shaped foods, but thought it may be a bit of a fad with limited uses… until now.
Recently Lucy and I decided to go on a little health drive, partly because I’ve been taking my “official cake tester” role too seriously since starting Globe Scoffers! Looking for ways to reduce our carb intake we realised that spiralising veg and using it in place of pasta could be a great way to start.
So we gave it a go with this recipe and I’m pleased to say the results were amazing! Not only did the courgette have a great fresh flavour it also gave an interesting crunch to the dish which brought a new twist to the idea of spaghetti. It also carried the sauce well and is incredibly easy to do!
I’d really recommend you getting yourself a spiraliser. Ours came from Amazon. They’re a great gadget to have around and we’ve only just started exploring the possibilities. Get yourself one now!
