Here’s how I make “Zoodles” also know as courgette pasta or courgette noodles.
Handy to have on an SP day if you are following Slimming World or as a low-carb option.
To make Zoodles!
I have a spiralizer, they are easy to purchase on Amazon but if you don’t have one, just use a vegetable peeler and make ribbons of courgette and chop the centres left over finely to add to the sauce.
For 2 people, peel (if you prefer) 3 courgettes, Spiralize on your preferred setting, or peel into ribbons. (To make thinner pasta strips from the ribbons, stack them and slice lengthways)
Place the cut courgette noodles into a large bowl and sprinkle liberally with salt. Mix well with your hands then transfer all to a colander, placing the colander over the bowl.
Leave for an hour for the excess water to drain off.
Press the noodles down (but not too hard!) to squeeze out even more excess liquid and then toss them up to separate again.
Spray a pan with lo cal oil or use oil of your choosing.
Add the noodles and stir around on medium heat until softened. Add a dash of water Id needed to prevent sticking
If you are pressed for time skip the draining of liquid step and just add straight to the pan, you won’t need to add any water while cooking but they may be a little bit mushy when cooked!
