Making Courgette Spaghetti with A Spirilizer

This week we were sent a Lurch Attila Hildmann Spiralizer. The Lurch Spiralizer is one of Europe’s Leading Spiralizer brands and we were really impressed with the machine. Sylvia and I decided to make Courgette Spaghetti which turned out quite nice.

The main ingredient of course was the Courgettes. We got the machine and made sure the suction feet were stable. We then chopped the ends off the courgette to enable Sylvia to stick the vegetable into the spiked grip pad. The pad was really quite strong.

We chose the correct blade for the job and then Sylvia began turning the handle which pushed the Courgette through the blade.

Making the spiral courgette spaghetti was quite fun. Sylvia enjoyed it and once we had a plate full we transferred it into a pan to boil.

I think the suction feet were really good and they ensured the spiralizer machine did not wobble. Both the handle needs winding at the top and the handle at the bottom needs pushing towards the blade to maintain pressure so mummy helped for safety reasons.

The machine had shelves on the back for storing the different blades which I think was really cool. it means your less likely to misplace  blades.

Once we finished with the Spiralizer it was really quick and simple to clean and easy to store. Once the courgettes were boiled we drained the water, cooked a cheese sauce and poured the sauce over the courgettes.

The spaghetti didn’t come out perfect as it was our first attempt but it was fun and Sylvia said it was really tasty. She enjoyed making her own dinner. I think next time we would either make more boiled courgette or add less cheese sauce.

You can make all sorts with the Spiralizer including spiralized carrots, apples and potatoes. There are also a list of recipes to try and ideas that come with the spiralizer and we had a lot of fun testing it out.

Here is the recipe for Cheese Sauce.

  • 2oz/50g mature Cheddar, grated
  • 1oz/25g parmesan), finely grated
  • 1 pint/570ml milk
  • 1½oz/40g plain flour
  • 1½oz/40g butter
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • a little freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt and black pepper

Have you used a spiralizer before? Why not give one a try. It was quite fun.

  1. I wish I had more space in my only one suitcase, I consume tons of courgettes and always grate them (can you imagine my fingers?). Thanks for sharing!

  2. I got one for Christmas and used it a lot for quick salads and pasta swaps. Apples work really well and you can use it onions for bhajis!

    With courgette, it’s quite wet so patting them dry will help keep their shape. It’s best to have light dressing style sauces as big wet cheese or tomato sauces will swamp them and the water from the courgette ends up diluting the sauce. What we try is to spiralise, lightly fry until warmed through and then add the sauce on top.

  3. Ooh, looks delicious – I would love a spiralizer! I have tried a few recipes recently which called for courgetti, but not having a spiralizer, I had to cut the courgettes into noodle shapes by hand, which I’m sure isn’t quite so nice – plus I know my kids would LOVE to have a go at making them. Thanks for sharing 🙂 Eb x

  4. It’s a very nice idea because I love spaghetti!! I can eat it every day but different types 😉 It looks so good!!

    1. thanks Ana. It is fun. I am honestly exhausted and not too flash but I have work to do and once it’s done and I’ve had a day at Britmums I intend to take a break from the blog for a few days and the a bigger break in the summer holidays. I need to.

  5. I have a spirilizer but have yet to use it. I need to just pull it out and go for it because this looks fantastic!

  6. There’s so much that you can do with this recipe, that’s for sure! Thanks for the tips on how to make this lovely dish, the cheese sauce sounds tempting!

  7. This looks delicious! I love adding courgettes into my risotto, I think they are under rated over here in Scotland – I think they are delicious!

  8. Ah you make it look so easy… I really want to get a spiralizer but Mr Button is convinced it will just end up being extra kitchen tat. Have you tried doing anything else? I love the sound of spiralized apple. Thank you so much for linking up to the #DreamTeam
