Love cooking pasta then this classic Italian Spaghetti Alla Nerano is just for you. This is quick and easy to cook and a cheap meal to make for all the family.

Step 1:

Heat the vegetable oil in a pot or wok over a medium flame. Once the oil is hot, fry the courgettes until golden brown (you may have to do them in batches).

Step 2:

Once golden brown, remove the courgettes and place them on a paper towel.

Step 3:

Sprinkle with basil and a pinch of Wild Herb Cooking Seasalt, before transferring into a large bowl. (If cooking in batches, repeat this process for the rest of the courgettes).

Step 4:

When all the courgettes have been added to the bowl, drizzle them with a generous glug of extra virgin olive oil and mix well.

Step 5:

Meanwhile, boil the spaghetti in a large pot of water. When cooked, drain the spaghetti and reserve at least two cups of the water.

Step 6:

In a pan, mix the spaghetti with the courgette mixture. Gradually add the pasta water until desired creaminess is reached. Add the parmesan and mix together, and serve.

Don’t forget you could serve this Spaghetti Alla Nerano recipe with warm or toasted bread!
