Pesto Courgetti Spaghetti – Vegan Recipe!

Courgetti Spaghetti in a fragrant homemade basil pesto!


A super quick and easy recipe which only requires 5 basic ingredients to make, and just 6 minutes of your time!

I made some lovely Homemade Basil Pesto and wanted to use it in a recipe – so I went for the obvious choice, with a twist! I have been gettingΒ  some serious pasta cravings recently, but I’ve also been eating a whole lot of junk so I felt like I need a healthy, yet delicious dinner. Courgetti Spaghetti!!

A healthy and light alternative to your normal spaghetti! It’s actually the first time I’ve had it and I really enjoyed it. I also didn’t get the guilty feeling after binging on a big bowl of spaghetti, as its just vegetables πŸ™‚

I cheated and used pre-spiralised courgetti spaghetti as I was just on my way home from an after-work yoga class and was naturally feeling a little lazy. Nothing wrong with taking shortcuts when you’re short on time!

I served mine with some pine nuts, vegan parmesan that I found in Whole Foods UK, and some roasted cherry tomatoes.
