Serves: 2-4
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, sliced
  • Splash of olive oil
  • 8 ripe med tomatoes, chunky diced
  • 1 capsicum, chunky diced
  • 1 handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 zucchini, spiralized
  1. In a large saucepan heat the olive oil over a medium heat and add the diced onion, crushed garlic & sliced chilli and saute for 3 minutes.
  2. (If you want the sauce to be less spicy, remove the seeds from the chilli. Or if you don't have a red chilli you can use ½ - 1 teaspoon of chilli powder instead.)
  3. Add the tomatoes, capsicum, basil, coriander and salt and pepper to the saucepan.
  4. Gently simmer for 12 - 15 minutes over a low-medium heat with the lid on. Stir every couple of minutes ensuring your mixture isn't dry. If need be add a little water, this might be needed if your tomatoes are not very juicy.
  5. Place the zucchini noodles on a plate and top with the chilli & tomato sauce when it's ready.
