Flax spaghetti



ingredients (serves 2)

  • 125g per person of flax spaghetti (I bought this from Coimbra in Lansdowne Road, Claremont, Cape Town)
  • IMG_9661
  • 1 tin of tomato puree
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3T+ butter + olive oil
  • 1/2 pack chopped courgettes
  • 1/2 chevin goats cheese
  • basil for serving
  • jalapeno slices if you like it spicy!


  • Melt the butter in a medium hot frying pan (Add a little olive oil to prevent it from burning)
  • Add the chopped onions and fry gently for about 15 minutes until soft and sweet
  • Add the courgettes and fry for a few minutes
  • Add tomato puree and simmer gently for about 15 minutes
  • In the meantime bring a big pot of salted water to the boil and cook the flax spaghetti for about 5 minutes (too long and it’s mushy)
  • Drain and add some butter
  • Top with your sauce, goats cheese and fresh basil (and jalapenos if you like it spicy!)
  • YUM!
