It’s time to get spiralising! Try this courgette ‘spaghetti’ recipe for a delicious and quick dinner.
Calorie controlled cooking spray
Extra lean beef mince (5% fat), raw
1 large, finely chopped
1 clove(s), crushed
1 can(s), large
1 teaspoon(s), level
2 tablespoon(s), level
Dried Mixed Herbs
Beef stock cube(s)
3 medium, large
5 leaf/leaves, to garnish
- Mist a large saucepan with the cooking spray over a medium heat. Add the mince, onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes until the mince is browned and the onions softened.
- Add the tomatoes, passata, Marmite, Worcestershire sauce, tomato purée and mixed herbs to the pan, stir well and bring to the boil. Crumble in the stock cube and stir again. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened.
- When the sauce is nearly ready, mist a large frying pan with cooking spray and add the spiralised courgette. Cook over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until slightly softened. Season to taste, divide between plates and serve topped with the sauce and garnished with the basil.
For vegetarians, this would taste great with Quorn mince instead of beef and a vegetable stock cube. You can reduce the simmering time to 10 minutes. Remember to adjust the SmartPoints.
