Carb free Pasta Putanesca

nocarbpastaIf you love pasta, try this carb-free option that tastes even better than the real thing!  You can also use carb-free noodles such as Slendier instead of zucchini/courgettes, although the latter taste better for this recipe!


3 courgettes (zucchini)

Anchovies (you wont taste them, they just give a salty richness to the dish)

2 cloves of garlic

Handful of capers

Handful of pitted black olives

Chilli flakes

Carton of chopped tomatoes

Olive oil or flavourless Coconut oil


Heat up a deep frypan or wok, then turn down to medium heat.  Add oil to coat the bottom, add 2 crushed cloves of garlic and 3-4 anchovies.  When the anchovies start to disintegrate and the garlic browns and softens, add sprinkle of chilli flakes, then chopped black olives and capers.  Stir it around for a while, then add the tomatoes.

When the flavours are piping hot, toss in the spiralled courgettes, that you have cut with a vegetable spiraller.  Don’t leave them in too long, or they will soften too much and liquify. Just toss them for a couple of minutes until hot, and remove from pan.  Sprinkle with parmesan.  Delicious!
