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