Lemon Pesto Courgette Spaghetti

 

COURG18

Lemon pesto courgette spaghetti with nectarine

What could be more simple yet taste divine, but lemony pesto courgette spaghetti with nectarine. Low carb, low cal, high protein, what more could you ask for?

This meal is ideal for vegans, health conscious and for meat-free days. This no-cook recipe is is quick to make, (about 10 mins!), tasty and very pretty! The fragrant creamy pesto contrasts with the sweetness from the nectarines.

Creamy lemony pesto! Mmm

This makes a lovely starter, a light meal, ideal for lunch-boxes and can be made more substantial by adding in olives and torn mozzarella (for non-vegans).

The non-vegan version: creamy mozzarella with a twist of black pepper

Ideally the courgette spaghetti is made with a spiraliser. But if you do not have one, grated courgettes give a similar result.

* Top tip: If you are unsure about investing in a desktop spiraliser, manual spiralisers which work a bit like pencil sharpeners work well for courgettes & are a lot cheaper.

Added note: I have just spotted & ordered a cheap table-top spiraliser which includes a no-quibble guarantee.

Then add the olive oil and pulse for a further 10 seconds.

Season with salt and pepper.

Toss this lemony pesto mixture with the courgette spaghetti. Stir in segments of nectarine.

If adding, tear mozzarella into rough pieces and add to the spaghetti dish. Arrange on two plates and enjoy!
