As you can see from the recipes in this book, I love food, particularly healthy and hearty food. And so for me, when I want a main meal using spiralized courgettes (zucchini), a heartier meal is actually combining courgette noodles with spaghetti! You’re getting some great vitamins and minerals from the veg, beans and chia in this supper, along with the energy that comes form the carbs in the pasta. In my book, that’s pretty perfect.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g dried spaghetti
1 x 400g tin white beans, drained and rinsed
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 large handfuls fresh spinach
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
2 large courgettes, spiralized
large handful basil, leaves torn
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the chia pesto

Quantity Ingredient
35g pine nuts
35g walnut halves
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100g basil, stems removed
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 lemon, juiced

Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, add the beans, onion, garlic, spinach, olive oil and lemon juice to a large saucepan over a medium heat. Cook until the spinach wilts, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the drained cooked pasta and the spiralized courgette to the bean mixture and keep on low heat. Season to taste.
  4. Blend all the pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth, then add to the pan and mix to coat the pasta mixture.
  5. Scatter the torn basil leaves over the top and serve.
