Courgetti Pasta

Using the courgette as the pasta is surprisingly tasty - you may never need proper spaghetti again!

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Courgettes (large) 2
Onion 1/4
Garlic 1 clove
Olive oil 3 tbsp
Dried chilli 1
Cherry tomatoes 4
Salted water 100ml
Parmigiano reggiano as you like

Method

1
Use a vegetable slicer to make courgette strings - it reminds me of schooldays sharpening pencils! If you find a vegetable slice, buy it - it's so simple to get thin strips of any vegetable!
2
Put the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Smash half the garlic and add with the chopped onion.
3
When the onion has browned, add the deseeded and crushed dried chill and the remaining half garlic finely chopped.
4
Add the halved cherry tomatoes and salted water (1 level tsp salt in 200ml water) and bring to the boil. Shake the pan to emulsify the sauce.
5
When the sauce has reduced by half, add the courgette strings and mix well to absorb the sauce.
6
Cook for 3 minutes then transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with the grated parmigiano reggiano on top before serving.
7
This is the vegetable slicer - if you google it, you'll find so many. I bought this for around £10, it's definitely worth it!

Tips & Note

●The cheese is optional but courgette and cheese go really well together
●Reducing the sauce and emulsifying it well is very important to stop the sauce being watery
