Even if you don’t have a spiralizer, you can still make courgetti — a knife and peeler do just as good a job. As with pasta, different shapes will produce different textures, which will go best with different sauces. This method of cooking makes perfectly al dente courgette, that doesn’t leach out water — best of all, it’s super speedy.


1 serving




    1. There are many ways to make courgetti, that will produce different shapes and textures, just like pasta.
    2. To make spaghetti or linguine, run a courgette though a spiralizer . If a spiralizer isn’t available, you can use a julienne peeler, or alternatively slice a courgette lengthways into 1/2 cm thick slices, and finely slice each slice into strips. It’s doesn’t matter if they’re irregular — this will add texture.
    3. To make tagliatelle, peel the courgette into strips using a peeler.
    4. Place the prepared courgette into a colander, pour over boiling water and allow to steam and drain for about 2–4 minutes.
    5. Serve as you normally would, pasta.
