Have you ever heard or courgetti? How about zucchini noodles? I hadn't either until I came across some delicious looking recipes on Pinterest. Courgetti is (of course) spaghetti (or noodles) made of very fine courgette strips using a julienne peeler. This little gadget costs very little and is very useful when making stir fries or salads (give me a little time and I am sure I will find a baking use as well!).
I don't make pasta very often for the simple reason that I tend to eat humongous quantities of it - I am powerless to resist a heaping plate of spaghetti. Courgetti however is extremely tasty and virtually calorie-free (100g is 18 calories vs 160 in 100g of spaghetti) so you can eat it and feel extremely virtuous about it. It is tailor-made for fasting days if you are on the 5:2 diet and takes mere minutes to prepare.
This dish combines a fresh and tangy yoghurt sauce with sweet roasted cherry tomatoes and red peppers. It is finger-licking good and super healthy to boot. You are allowed to feel a little smug eating it.
Note: this works well with linguine instead of courgette or a combination of both.
