Recipe | Zucchini Spaghetti with Goat Cheese & Pesto
March 15, 2016

Hi sweeties!

Today, I have another recipe for you! For Christmas, my mom gave me a Spirelli, with which you can make spaghetti from basically everything. Including zucchini! I had zucchini spaghetti at an event once, and I thought it was surprisingly good. Because usually, I don’t even like zucchini, haha! But now that I knew that I liked it when made into spaghetti, I decided to make it myself too! The Spirelli is really amazing, by the way. It’s just so much fun to see how spaghetti strings magically come out of it, when you twist the zucchini, haha! I finished off the dish with goat cheese balls, which I rolled in coriander and almond shavings, cherry tomatoes, fresh spinach, pesto, and pine nuts. Super healthy, delicious, and also really pretty looking! My boyfriend also really loved it! I think this is going to be one of my new dishes which I would make as a starter, when we have people over. Does this sound yummy to you? Then be sure to read along for the recipe!

How to make it?

1) Chop the onion and crush the garlic clove.
2) Heat some olive oil, and fry the onion and garlic.
3) Make spaghetti from the zucchini. I used a spirelli for this. This is the quickest I think. But if you don’t have one, you could also use a grater, or cut very thin strings by hand.
4) Add the zucchini to the onion and garlic, and stir-fry this shortly.
5) Add two table spoons of pesto, and stir this through the zucchini. Then turn off the fire.
6) Knead little balls of the goat cheese. I had goat cheese which was already divided in 7 slices. So I divided all these slices in two, such that I had 14 equal balls. If you have one piece, you could keep breaking the pieces into halfs, until you’re left with a size that you like.
7) Chop the coriander and almond shavings, and mix it together.
8) Roll the goat cheese balls through this mixture.
9) Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
10) Divide the spinach on the plates, then divide the zucchini over this, and then add the goat cheese balls and cherry tomatoes. And lastly, top with some pine nuts.

Bon appétit!

    Dat is toevallig, wij hebben ook net “courgetti” gegeten, maar dan op andere manier klaargemaakt! Deze klinkt ook erg lekker, dus ga `m zeker een keer proberen!
