Courgetti with Cashew Pesto

Jeannette Jackson

This is a super healthy alternative to spaghetti.

Courgettes are one of the lowest calorie vegetables (just 17 in a 100g serving) and an excellent source of dietary fibre. They make you feel fuller for longer, without adding calories, making them a fantastic choice for losing weight. They are also full of manganese and vitamin C and have a high content of omega-3 fatty acids and a whole host of other nutrients.

Cashew nuts are very low in fibre, however they are packed with antioxidants and good for lowering blood pressure, plus they add a tasty crunch to the spaghetti.

Creating a garlic and basil pesto not only adds to the spaghetti illusion, it's also great for your immune system and your blood.

Filling, tasty and low calorie, this is one spaghetti you can enjoy completely guilt-free.
