Boodles & Coodles (That's Butternut Squash & Courgette) in Garlic, Chilli & Pesto

by - June 12, 2016

It's time to get that spiralizer out again because the fun just never stops! Buy them pre-cut if you want to save time but either way this dish is ready in minutes - flash fried vegetable noodles in chilli, garlic and pesto.


 I actually bought these pre-cut from Tesco because mine is currently broken from overuse! It's great that there is now the option to buy vegetables in noodle form - making it more accessible for everyone to get a variety of vegetables into their lives and to keep things interesting, because it doesn't just have to be boiled carrots and frozen peas! I've also spotted 'beetroot rice' as well as 'cauli rice' recently. So butternut squash noodles are a total win and are available in Tesco.


I wanted to share with you how much I love using pesto in different ways - it's so delicious. Of course it's great with pasta, on baked fish or chicken but I've recently started using it as a salad dressing too - more on that to come...

This one is a simple basil pesto which is cheesy and great and tones down any spice you've added to the dish - I put a whole green chilli into this so it was a good balance when the tangy yet creamy pesto was thrown in to calm the situation down.


Handful of courgette noodles 
Handful of butternut squash noodles
2 cloves of garlic - crushed
25-30g salted butter
One chilli - seeds removed, chopped finely
2 tablespoons of basil (green) pesto


Fry your garlic in the butter on a low heat before adding the zoodles and coodles
Add the chilli and stir it all around for about 3-4 minutes
Then add your dollops of pesto and stir it through before serving.
