Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts and Peas

Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts and Peas

New Start! Yes? Well this Courgetti with Bacon, Pine-nuts and Peas might just help! 🙂

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!

But it’s still so good and I was really really so pleased with the results!

Also did you know that courgettes are know as zucchini in the US – just in case you wondered 


So here’s my second courgetti recipe this time with bacon

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 a Bacon, Pine-nuts  and Peas variation.

I so love this recipe – super tasty! and I know many of you love it too.

Spiralizers for making your courgetti

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! :

Look at the picture – no soggy here:

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
