Zucchetti with Lime & Goats Cheese

Serves 4


1600g zucchini, spiralised

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

3 tablespoons capers

4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons lime rind

5 tablespoons lime zest

150g rocket, shredded

1/4 cup shredded mint leaves

Good pinch of chilli flakes

150g goats cheese, crumbled

Salt and pepper to season


Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add in the olive and capers and cook for 8 minutes until slightly crispy. Add in the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Place the zucchini noodles into the pan with the lime rind and juice and using tongs toss to ensure an even coverage. Cook for a further 3 minutes, tossing intermittently. Next add in the shredded rocket and mint leaves before seasoning with chilli flakes and salt and pepper.

Remove from the heat and divide between four serving bowls before topping with crumbled goats cheese.
