Got a new Toy....

Take a look at this, what do you think it is?


The sauce was made with garlic and herb philladelphia cream cheese and smoked salmon off cuts. Looks like pasta huh?   Well those of you who know me, know I can't eat the stuff, but I enjoyed this dish no end. Fresh, crunchy, creamy with the cheese and decadent with the smoked salmon.... Shall I tell you what I used to make my 'fake' spaghetti???


Its made with fresh courgettes, cut in my new toy, the spiralizer .
Its totally amazing! Once I'd cut it and left it to rest while I made the sauce, it took on the texture of pasta. I didn't cook it, although I've been told I could have blanched harder vegetables like celeriac, with courgettes you don't need to. I have a shed load of new recipes to try so watch this space....

The options are endless!
