This is an easy recipe for creamy tomato sauce with courgette spaghetti.
The sauce is creamy thanks to the cashews and has no oil added. You can either steam the courgette spaghetti for 30 seconds or leave raw.
In the summer I prefer the raw spaghetti and in the winter when I want something warmer I have the softer cooked version.
Top with anything you like, I find black olives, basil leaves and fresh tomatoes work well.

To get a cheesy nutty taste try a teaspoon of nutritional yeast sprinkled on top. For extra crunch add some chopped up nuts such as macadamia or pine nuts.
If you don’t have a spiralizer you can use a julienne slicer or a vegetable peeler to make thin strips of courgette
