Courgette Spaghetti with Pesto and sticky wings

With the heat wave sweeping across England at the moment, it's just too hot and stuffy to eat anything other than salad. Ever since I managed to knock myself out eating pasta with pesto last year, I've minimized my gluten intake. One thing's for sure, I rarely eat bread or white pasta if I've got an appointment to go to unless I want to slur my words and turn into a groggy fool. It took 3 cups of ultra strong espresso to revive me the last time......

I must be the last person on planet Earth to discover courgette spaghetti. It's incredibly filling (who would've thought that?!) and hey, no guilt whatsoever if you're planning to over-indulge.  Since the rest of the family would likely starve to death from lack of protein, I served the dish with sticky chicken wings. I'm terrible with recipes so I just guesstimate as I go along.

The marinade for the wings consisted of honey, sweet soy sauce, light soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil. Do taste before using the marinade. Mix the ingredients together and dump it into a ziplock bag along with the wings. Marinade overnight or if you can't, an hour or two. Bake for an hour or so. Do reserve a bit of the liquid so that you can baste the wings every now and then. Here's an easy recipe for pesto. Bon Ap├ętit!

  3. Delicious!! I have a 'zoodler' that makes spiral noodles out of zucchini - I love it and it works great with other veg too! I love adding zoodles to different meals to add bulk when I'm STARVING! xx

  5. My neighbour has just given me a high courgette to be eaten up today, home grown! I'm guessing I need one of those metal contraptions though to sort it out - damn! Next time x

  7. Cucumber noodles are really delicious, too, especially in applications where you might use soba noodles...in a cold salad, for example. It is super hot and disgusting here in Atlanta, too...blech.
