Gluten Free Vegan Courgetti Bolognese

I have a confession to make. I love vegetables, but I hate courgettes/zucchini. I first tried it as a child, when I had mistaken it for a slice of refreshing cucumber. I wasn't expecting the spongy texture and the acrid taste and I'd been put off raw courgette for life. To this day, if I'm not 100% sure it's a cucumber, my husband is my guinea pig, taking the first bite for me to check which vegetable I'm about to eat. I've got a phobia of raw courgette, y'all. Now cooked courgette? I love it! I can eat it all day. And thankfully, so can my family.

 The kind folks at Ideal World, sent me this amazing Cookshop Spiralizer to try out and I immediately set about, spiralizing everything in my sight. I was introduced to courgetti once a few years ago at a raw food dinner party. Given my fears about raw courgette, I didn't try it, but I loved the idea of it! So I wanted to develop a healthy courgetti that was suited for people who don't actually like raw zucchini. This courgetti recipe is a bit different in that it's made with half a family-sized serving of gluten free spaghetti. The combination is great: the spaghetti helps to mask the courgettes for kids or adults who aren't too keen on it and the zucchini also adds a nice texture to the pasta.

This recipe is definitely one to keep handy for quick summer dinners. It's versatile and can easily by doubled or tripled to feed a large crowd. Plus, you can swap it out, and chop and change it all you want. Skip the gluten free spaghetti altogether. Or get adventurous with your spiralizer and add in some other veggies to your bolognese--try carrots or aubergines/eggplants!
