Courgetti Carbonara

Courgetti is a lifesaver, its definitely my go to quick dish when I get in late and I need something fast. However courgetti does need some tarting up….with lovely dips and sauces! I picked up a spiralizer for 40 quid but you can pick up julienne peelers for 2-3 euro in homeware stores that do the job nicely too, they are also handy for travelling, small and neat for anyone with confined kitchen space. The only part that takes a little bit of prep is the sauce, make sure you have the cashews soaked well in advance. You can pre make the entire sauce and store in a glass jar for 3 days in the fridge.
