    1. Slice courgette into thin strands using a vegetable peeler or spiraliser; toss with salt until combined. Drain on kitchen roll until moisture is drawn out; about 20 minutes. Squeeze courgette to remove remaining moisture.
    2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and red pepper; cook and stir until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
    3. Stir courgette into the onion mixture; cook and stir until tender and mixture looks dry, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Stir in milk and cook, 1 to 2 minutes. Add grated pecorino cheese, pepper and oregano; stir until combined.

    I added sliced mushrooms and the whole dish was fabulous. Would make again. I feel so healthy now.  -  17 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was awesome!! Absolutely loved it. I used parmesan cheese instead. I also drizzled with a chicken and alfredo sauce (to add protein and make it more filling).  -  12 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
