• I found this fabulously easy recipe on Izy’s blog – she’s an outstanding food blogger and photographer who is *gulp* just seventeen – how to feel ancient in the click of a button.

    What i love obvs is that there are no carbs in sight – so you can spend them calories on extra Parmesan – perfect!

    This pic solves the ‘how to make zucchini spaghetti strands’ mystery – watch the animation here

    As you can see – the zucchini used in this recipe (in the pic below) is bigger than the ones we get here so i would simply double up.

    And here’s the recipe

    Lazy Girl’s Zucchini Spaghetti with Peas, Crème Fraîche and Pesto
    1 medium zucchini, washed
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 clove of garlic, peeled + finely minced
    2 tsp basil pesto
    1 tbsp crème fraîche, cream cheese, ricotta or mascarpone
    1 handful of fresh or frozen peas
    salt and pepper
    lemon zest and Parmesan cheese, to finish

    Take a box grater and place it on its side with the side with the largest grating holes on it face up.

    Cut the ends off the zucchini, then push along the top of grater, in long strokes in order to create long, thin ribbons of zucchini

    Heat a skillet with the olive oil, then gently fry the zucchini with the garlic until slightly tender. Stir in the pesto, crème fraîche (or whatever creamy ingredient you’re using) and the peas (even if they are frozen. They’ll defrost quickly in the frying pan). Stir until coated, season with salt and pepper, then take off the heat.

    Pile it into a dish (or on a bed of raw spinach leaves), and grate over some lemon zest and Parmesan.

      Sounds like a lovely combination of flavours but that ‘zucchini in the picture looks as big as a cucumber. Our zucchinis are small and one of those would be inadequate. So which is it?

      Gill, i’ve commented on the zucchini’s in the text above – i would double up if they’re the biggish ones that are around at the moment or triple up if they’re the small ones – the idea is to get enough zucchini as to form the bulk of your meal – much like you’d take a handful of spaghetti.
