Courgette noodles- a pasta alternative!

In the past two weeks I’ve seen a lot of recipes for courgette noodles. So I thought I’d give it a go!
First a got myself a veg spiral maker, relatively cheap from ebay.
With an abundance of home grown courgettes this summer I quickly got to work. The spiralling off the courgettes is a bit tricking at first and they won’t look perfect like the magazines, they taste great though!

5 x courgettes
Gluten free sausages
1 x onion
1 x garlic clove
1 x chopped tomatoes tinned

I used 5 small courgettes for two people.
Spiral them and leave in a colander whilst you cook up a sauce, you can’t sprinkle with salt and a little olive oil.

I made a spag bol type sauce with gluten free sausages cut into chunks, 1 onion fried with 1 clove of garlic.
Add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, a little salt and pepper and a tiny amount of sugar to sweeten the sauce.
I also added some home grown cherry tomatoes whole that cooked down and became little bursts of fresh flavour in the sauce.

In a wok heat a little oil, I used rape seed oil. Pat down the courgettes with kitchen towel and add the courgettes to the wok. Fry a little until they soften but don’t burn. Squeeze half the juice of a lemon over them.
Serve the noodles with the sugar sauce.
Really tasty and a great alternative to pasta!
