I have never really liked pasta so for me this is a great alternative with a great bonus that it is low in calories. I am really enjoying replacing some of my carbohydrates with more vegetables you still get to eat a lot but you don't have the overly full feel afterwards.
To make my courghetti I use a mandolin with a julienne setting but using a peeler to make ribbons would work just as well.
I use one courgette per person. If you use a mandolin use the safeguard I learnt the hard way!
Once sliced, cook whatever you are going to have with it, I usually have salmon but you can have whatever you normally would have with pasta.
When your sauce is nearly cooked put on a pan of boiling water and add the courghetti cook for around a minute, drain and then serve.
I flake my salmon into the courghetti and add some salt, pepper, butter and chilli. Simple but delicious and so satisfying despite its low calorie content.
