Video: How to Make Courgette Pasta

Courgette pasta is one of my absolute favourite things, I make it all the time as it’s just so quick and easy yet still so satisfying and amazingly delicious! Since everyone loves it so much I thought it would be helpful to make a video to talk you through how to make it, both with and without a spiralizer so that everyone can eat this at home. The sauce for this dish is my favourite thing about it, it’s made with brazil nuts and avocado, which means it’s extra creamy! I then sauté lots of thinly sliced chestnut mushrooms and scatter them on top of the dish to add texture and extra flavour, it’s so awesome. The full recipe is written here if you’d like to read it rather than watch it!

    Great tips ella! I use a grater to make mine :)

  • Izzy

    Dear Ella,
    I just made your amazing courgette pasta for dinner and my mum was in awe of how simple and delicious it was! We both loved the dish – very yummy. Also I didn’t have a spiralizer but found that if you turn a box grater on its side and use one of the larger grating settings (bigger holes), you can run the courgette along that and easily produce strands of courgette pasta (although it was flat).
    Can’t wait to try another of your recipes and thanks for the easy video.

    Hi Ella,

    Can you tell me what brand of spiralizer you use? I’m thinking of purchasing one but want to make sure I get a good quality one that comes recommended by someone who’s put it to the test.

  • Rachael Attard

    It seems to be all about courgette pasta these days, I love it! This recipe looks absolutely deliciously. Thanks for sharing Ella! :)

  • ellawoodward

    They should freeze well!

  • Emily

    Hi Ella, I want to buy a spiralizer, but am confused which of the two on your store to buy. Which would you recommend as more durable? xx

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Emily,
    They are both great – I just have two on there because sometimes one or the other sells out. x

    hey :)

    i understand that you don’t eat meat and i was wondering is meat bad for your health or could you still have it and still be healthy?

    im going to try this recipe out soon for my lunch maybe over the weekend.

    Just bought your book. xx

  • ellawoodward

    Hi, it’s really difficult for me to advise as everyone is different and has different dietary requirements. For me, I don’t feel great when I eat meat, my energy is always low as I find it very difficult to digest. This is why I prefer a plant-based diet. I think ultimately it’s all about how your food makes your feel and responding to what your body craves. Have a lovely day, Ella x

    Tried this today for lunch, it was absolutely delicious!! The mushrooms gave it so much flavour. I actually dressed it with homemade basil pesto (as I’m not an avocado fan) and it turned out amazing.

  • geenja

    Going.., going.., gone! Hi, this my very own, first, messy, courgetti-spaguetti with your brazilnut-avo sauce. it was yum, but i’d add some kick to it like, cayenne pepper? the mint really works. thanks!

  • Sarah Moody

    Hi Ella, I have just tried this and it was delicious although think I did a bit too much pesto for one person! (It might not be feasible but maybe you could have a section on your site for “recipes for 1″) I have a Magimix but could still taste bits of Brazil nut – did I perhaps use too many or maybe I should have added liquid?

    Thanks again for another great recipe!

      Make sure you blend the brazil nuts until they create a really creamy consistency. You then need to add the other ingredients and the water gradually until it creates a sauce. The pesto freezes well so you could always freeze it and enjoy it throughout the week too! Have a lovely day x

  • ellawoodward

    It’s an old dress, sadly I can’t remember where it’s from! Have a lovely day! X

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Tim, I would recommend lightly sauteeing the courgette noodles if you want them warm. Courgette is naturally really soft so boiling it like regular pasta will probably cause it to fall apart. Hope you enjoy it! X

    • Tim Brennik

      Yeah thought so. I guess there’s still a risk of them getting a bit squishy even when frying; is there anything you could do as well when frying to almost help them get crunchier? But not too the degree of courgette fries

      • ellawoodward

        Roasting is usually best to get things crunchy however I have never tried roasted courgette spaghetti before. Hope it turns out delicious! X

  • ellawoodward

    The pesto for my pea and spinach pesto pasta uses pine nuts not brazil nuts and it’s absolutely delicious. You can find the recipe here!

  • ellawoodward

    It should last in the fridge for about 3 days, in a sealed container. Hope you enjoy it x

  • ellawoodward

    You can switch mushrooms for any other vegetable that you love x
