So I don’t think I’ve mentioned that we’ve started to get the fruit n veg boxes from Abel & Cole again. Now I can taste and have some energy to cook it seems worth it!
We’re also both trying to loose a bit of weight and eat more healthily again too. On that note I wanted to post about a dinner I made the other day which was surprisingly good. Courgettes are not my favourite veg – but they arrived in the box so I had to find something to do with them… and that was ‘courgette pasta’.
Basically, take a courgette or two and a veg peeler and ‘peel’ the courgette into ribbons. You could leave them like that but I cut them lengthways so they ended up like linguine. Whack them in a pan of boiling water for one minute and the drain and rinse with cold water.
Make the rest of your normal pasta dish at this point – but only using half the amount of pasta as normal. I did tomato & chilli prawn linguine. Right at the end of cooking combine the courgette ribbons ‘pasta’ with the actual pasta juat to warm it – and serve as normal.
This was lovely – and cuts the calories significantly!! We got courgettes again in the veg box this week and I’m thinking some kind of smoked salmon / creme fraiche ensemble this time… I’ll let you know how it goes!
