COURGETTE IS JUST A FANCY NAME FOR ZUCCHINI AND NOW IS THE TIME OF YEAR THAT WE ARE HARVESTING OUR HOME GROWN ZUCCHINI AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH IT ALL!
Courgette spaghetti is a fantastic food for every day! You just shred a courgette with a peeler, quickly fry or microwave and then serve in a sauce of your choice. It’s quicker to cook than pasta and is so tasty. One large courgette, enough to make a big bowl of spaghetti, has only 36 calories.
Spaghetti or tagliatelle
The easiest and lowest calorie way to cook it is by steaming the coughetti in the microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. You can add a few tablespoons of vegetable broth or chicken broth for a little flavor but I usually just top with my favorite sauce.
1 large courgette (36 cals)
1 tsp olive oil (27 cals)
1 clove garlic, crushed (4 cals)
2 tomatoes, chopped (28 cals)
