Dinner | Quick | Low Carb

This recipe looks the part and tastes even better. It is ultimate comfort in a bowl. Creamy, with all the delights of eating noodles, but without the high blood sugar or bucket loads of insulin. Cooking with full fat ingredients, keeps the carbs low and the decadence high. Whoever you cook this for, won't believe it is so low in carbs. In this recipe we have used courgetti but you could replace with something like konjac spaghetti.


  • butter (2 tbsp)
  • double cream (200ml)
  • chorizo (50g, chopped)
  • white onion (1 medium, sliced)
  • spring onion (1, sliced)
  • mature cheddar cheese (100g)
  • courgettes (2 large, noodles)
  • black pepper (pinch)


In to a deep pan, add the butter and melt over medium-high heat.
Fry off white onion, spring onion and chorizo until soft and the chorizo crisping up. Reduce the heat.
Add in the double cream, mature cheddar and stir through. Cook for a few minutes until it has thickened slightly.
Add in cracked black pepper, your courgetti and stir through.
Add some parsley on top and serve.


You can spiralise your courgette using multiple kitchen utensils. If you don't have a spiraliser, you can use a vegetable peeler and peel down the length of the courgette so that you have tagliatelle style strips.
