Courgetti (Courgette Noodles)

You may have seen them as a pricey alternative to pasta or as an option at a new, modern restaurant, but courgette noodles (also known as “courgetti“) are easy to make and truly tasty. The perfect gluten-free spaghetti alternative, courgetti offer a similar consistency to the real thing, but with an incredible amount of nutritional value.


Simply use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to turn your courgette into thin, noodle-like strips.

How to Sauté Courgette Noodles

Add one tablespoon of olive oil or avocado oil to a pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

How to Boil Courgette Noodles

Boil a pot of water, toss in your courgette noodles, and cook for one minute.

Once your noodles have cooked, drain the noodles in a colander and serve. If you’d like them super dry, blot them with a paper towel before serving.

How to Bake Courgette Noodles

Preheat your oven to 95°C. Line a baking sheet with a paper towel and evenly distribute your noodles on top. Then sprinkle with sea salt. The sea salt helps to draw out the moisture while the paper towel soaks it up. Cook for 10-15 minutes, then remove from the oven and gently squeeze the noodles in the paper towel to take out any additional water.
