How To Make Courgetti with Feta, Chilli and Fried Garlic By Honest Mum

Update post.

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.

Vegetable Spiralizer

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!

    I’m trying to be healthier and lose some weight, this would be great to help with the calorie counting!

    My daughter has become vegetarian and if I was your lucky winner I would give this kitchen must have to her! Starting a new home away from mine this would give meals a new twist and help her get some healthy habits

    I love vegetarian food and would love a proper spiraliser to add variety. I do have a potato peeler one but it doesn’t work very well. I have spiraliser envy! My husband says we don’t have room for a large model but if I won one what could he say???

    I’m always looking for new, fun ways to get more veg into our meals. A spiralizer would be perfect!!

    Have wanted to get a spiralizer for ages! I’m a self-confessed carbaholic (seriously, I will eat anything starchy!) and really need to cut down if I’m to reach my target weight so this would be perfect!
