I LOVE pasta but following a low-GI diet and gluten-free one at that most of the time (sadly wheat doesn’t love me back), this dish has been a lunchtime life saver: light, quick and delicious, I know you guys will adore it too!
Enter stage left courgetti with feta, a dish that has really taken off and it’s easy to see why! Nutritious and delicious, it’s also super easy to make too.
I’m a real gadget girl and any technology in the kitchen that simplifies preparing and cooking food, is a winner in my eyes.
In fact one big bowl has just 36 calories!
To make the courgette linguine, I use this Spiralz vegetable spiralizer from Juiceland (worth £29.95) and I’m pleased to announce that one lucky reader can win one via Rafflecopter below.
Easy to use and – most importantly – easy to clean, the spiralizer is great quality and has even been recommended by the Huffington Post and Daily Mail.
It really is an essential kitchen gadget – especially if you’re vegetarian, following a health diet or a raw food enthusiast.
It comes with 3 different blades. One for spaghetti/linguine, a second for ribbon pasta and a third for spirals. You can also spiralize all kinds of vegetables, including cucumber, carrot, sweet potato, celeriac, kohlrabi and fennel – to name just a few.
It’s so simple to operate, even my 5 year old under supervision could use it. Simply place your chosen veg into the machine, turn the handle and et voila!
