Courgetti, Thyme crumbs & slow roasted tomatoes.

This is a dish of the moment. Courgette noodles are everywhere and they are super easy to make your own as you can add what every you fancy to make them a delicious pasta substitute .  you can eat bowls of the stuff and feel full but not that bloated feeling that is all so familiar post a big pasta dish.

You can eat them raw or cook them briefly for a few moments in boiling water, or stir fry to heat them.

For three you will need...

3 medium courgettes
a pack of cherry tomatoes
4 or 5 de crusted slices of bread
a good sprinkling of herbs and rind of a lemon.
A shake of balsamic vinegar
1 clove of garlic

First, using a Courgetti Maker (Spirelli) make your courgette pasta and set to one side while you get your tomatoes roasting.

Chop your tomatoes in half and drizzle with oil and balsamic, a good shake of salt and pepper and herbs - roast for 30 minutes until soft and bubbling. 

Next whiz up your crumbs and fry in a pan with some oil, herbs and lemon rind until golden and smelling delicious.

When your crumbs are toasted and tomatoes are almost ready pop your courgetti into a pan with some oil and garlic and ligtly stir fry for a few moments until soft then pile with your sticky tomato mixture and top with toasty crumbs.

A great summer time dish and a fantastic summer substitute that almost everyone is convinced by!
