Back to Blogging – Courgetti

  It’s been soooooo long since I shared a post – I now have some good recipes saved up to share.

I thought I would start with something seasonal, healthy, light and tasty – Courgetti!

Elix bought us a spiralizer and it fast became our favourite toy! The below recipe is our favourite but Courgetti can also be paired with any pasta sauce or maybe the Tuna Meatballs that I have mentioned before.

Ingredients (for 2 servings)
2 large Courgettes
200g Cherry Tomatoes
1 clove Garlic crushed
6 Anchovy fillets – chopped
Chilli – either fresh or dried your choice!
Handful of Basil torn
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil
Pinenuts – a handful toasted
Parmesan – grated

Start by spiralizing the courgettes into spaghetti shape and leave in a large bowl with. sprinkle of salt.
Fry the tomatoes whole in a pan with no oil, as they start to char slightly add the anchovies, garlic and chilli with a drizzle of olive oil. As the tomatoes start to soften mash them adding a few drops of water to help a sauce form.
Once a tasty, rich sauce has formed, add in the courgetti and heat through.
Serve with the basil, parmesan and pinenuts scattered on top for extra sweetness and texture.
