Courgetti with Chicken & Pesto

Courgetti with Chicken & Pesto

I was very sceptical about ‘Courgetti’ and the hype that surrounds it, after all it’s not spaghetti for heavens sake it’s just ribboned courgettes! Anyway feeling particularly fat today I decided to try and have a good week this week, so a perfect opportunity to try out this much talked about ribboned veg!

So here goes, actually I was really surprised – it’s amazing that the brain can actually think it’s spaghetti like!! 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, today I found a box in Tescos’s – Ta dah! – perfect so let’s try it! And now they are in M&S and everywhere! I simply do not want another kitchen gadget – but if you do I think it would be worth it!

Here’s my first recipe with Courgetti … good (not quite fish and chips) – but it does feel like you are eating something substantial when you are trying to be a little healthier

I may well do another recipe based on courgetti (or even two) I’ll start with a tomato, chilli one….

So how a go and let me know what you think, please drop a comment below the post

Thanks Cx
