If you’re looking for a simple spiralizer recipe to get you started then look no further than this easy recipe. I’ve combined classic flavours to make a perfect one pan courgetti meal.
One of my favourite things about courgetti is that it is so versatile. You can serve it just like normal spaghetti with an almost infinite array of sauces or you can go even simpler and toss in a few hero ingredients at the end of the cooking time.
Follow the 3 basic rules of courgetti
- Blot on kitchen paper
- Stir-fry on a high heat
And you’ll have an amazing natural, healthy and fresh ‘pasta’ that is never boring.
You only need a few simple ingredients for this flavoursome dish – courgette (obviously!), garlic, olive oil, olives, lemon and parmesan. Let’s get stuck in and cook a delicious meal in less than 10 minutes.
1 medium courgette
1 clove garlic
1 tsp olive oil
8 black olives
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp freshly grated parmesan
Take a medium courgette, washed and dried. Cut off one end and push the cut end of the courgette gently but firmly through your spiralize. Try to give and even turn and if possible spiralize the whole courgette in one go.
Arrange the spiralized courgette over 2 sheets of kitchen paper. Put 2 more sheets of kitchen paper over the top and press down firmly. Leave to absorb water from the courgette for at least 2 minutes.
Peel and finely chop one clove of garlic.
Heat the olive oil in a large wide pan until sizzlingly hot. Add the garlic, stir, then immediately add the courgetti. Stir again and then leave to cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir once a minute. When the courgetti has a browned in places then it is ready. Remove from the heat.
Lemon and olives
Leaving the courgetti in the pan, season generously with salt and pepper. Then add the olives and lemon juice. Stir to combine and warm through for 30 seconds to a minute.
Transfer the courgetti to a serving plate. Sprinkle over the parmesan and serve immediately.
