Courgetti bolognese

I thought i was so clever, sneaking a courgette into A’s dinner. Usually I have to cook them to mush in the slow cooker to avoid detection.


Diced onion, roasted vegetables (both frozen), a spinach cube, a spiralised courgette, tomatoes and spaghetti. Add grated cheese and there we had my new favourite 10 minute dinner.

The reject plate. With every strand of cougette expertly identified and removed.

B said it was delicious, but hopped down from the table after 3 bites. A asked what these bits were, and complained that they were EVERYWHERE!

At least I had fun making it!
