About this recipe: Replace the pasta with courgette! This low-carb alternative is low-guilt and ever so easy to make. Less washing up too as this is a one-pot dish!


Serves: 3 

  • 450g beef mince
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 425g tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 (400g) tin whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chilli flakes
  • 170g tomato puree
  • 3 courgettes, julienned

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Heat a large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and black pepper in the hot pan until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Mix tomato pasta sauce, tomatoes, salt, basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and chilli flakes into beef; cook and stir until sauce is warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir tomato puree into sauce.
  3. Mix courgette "noodles" into sauce, pressing down to fully submerge them; simmer over medium-low heat until courgette is tender, about 10 minutes.


For best results of noodle shapes, run the courgette through a spiralizing tool.
