If you fancy giving courgetti a go, why not follow this simple Courgetti Bolognese recipe to get you started.
1. Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the mince. Fry until browned, then scoop into a bowl and set aside.
2. Add the onion to the pan and cook on a low heat for 8-10 mins until tender. Then add the garlic, stirring for 1 min or so, followed by the carrot and the mushrooms, stirring for about 3 mins until softened. Put the mince back into the pan, and add the tomato purée and chopped tomatoes. Fill one of the tomato cans with water and pour that into the pan. Crumble over the stock cubes and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for about 1 hr, until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are tender.
3. When the bolognese is nearly ready, stir through the soy sauce and season to taste. Spiralize your courgettes on the smallest noodle attachment. Heat a large frying pan with the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil and add your courgetti. Cook for 2-3 mins, until slightly softened . Season and serve topped with the bolognese, grated pecorino and basil leaves.
