Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts & Peas

Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts & Peas

New Start! Yes?

I was very sceptical about ‘Courgetti’ and the hype that surrounds it, I make no secret of that! However I have mellowed as I’m really trying to cut down the carbs,  but it’s still not spaghetti for heavens sake it’s just ribboned courgettes!

So here’s my second courgetti recipe –  it’s amazing that the brain can actually think it’s spaghetti!! and mine did almost. I have been trying to decide for a while if to buy one of those ‘spririlizers’ but alas no need quite yet – it’s everywhere in the supermarkets. So here we have Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts & Peas. I so love this recipe – super tasty!

I’ve been looking around at ‘spiralizers’ and here’s a couple I can recommend, the bottom one from Joseph Joseph is amazing – I’ll do a live video when I get a chance. What I do like about making my own courgetti is that it’s dryer and fresher than the shop bought courgetti! :

Let me know if you’ve found any good ‘spiralizers’

Please have a try and let me know what you think, drop me a comment below, I do so love to have your comments

Thanks Clare x

  3. In a sauce pan add a spray of fry light and the frozen peas, fry for 2 minutes until defrosted, add the torn basil leaves and courgetti.
  4. Stir fry for MAXIMUM 2 minutes –  DO NOT OVERCOOK the courgetti – you will end up with a soggy mess
  5. Add the Creme Fraise to the courgetti mix and give a quick stir heating through – maximum 1 minute, remove from the heat

Vicki Montague - The Free From Fairy says:
This looks great! I will have to think of a sub for the creme fraiche as I can't eat dairy but otherwise this looks like a delicious recipe!
    Clare x says:
    Oh if you find one can you let me know - is there something soya / oil based - you just need something creamy - and mot a lot of it either as the courgettes yield quite a lot of liquid - Good Luck x
