Avoiding carbs but still want the pleasure of tucking into a plate of ‘pasta’? This courgette pappardelle recipe is the answer. All you need it the fattest courgettes you can lay your hands on plus a veggie peeler to create wide ribbons of courgette pappardelle in seconds! A generous shake of our NEW Cape Herb & Spice Steam Veggie Seasoning, a few peas, feta and mint for freshness and you have yourself a plate of ‘pasta’ with all the joy and none of the guilt!


Use a vegetable peeler to peel the courgettes into long, wide ribbons. Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to a non-stick pan and gently fry the clove of garlic for four minutes to impart a subtle garlic flavour to the oil. Remove the garlic. Turn up the heat and add the courgette ribbons and peas to the pan.

Toss the courgettes a few times as they fry or gently stir them, taking care not to break them up. Season them with a few generous shakes of the Cape Herb & Spice Steam Veggie Seasoning and squeeze over the juice of half a lemon. Plate up and crumble over feta, scatter over chilli and mint leaves. Tuck in!
